Warning – Several sightings of Portguese Man O’War jellyfish

portuguese-man-owar-clonea2-031016Beach goers and swimmers alike are asked to be vigilant as several members of the public have reported Portuguese Man O’War jellyfish both in the sea and washed up on shore.

The sightings were on Ardmore beach, Clonea beach (Castle end) and Tramore beach.

The sting from these creatures is very painful and can be fatal – even when the animal is dead, so please do not touch or pick them up etc.

Report all sightings to contact@waterfordcouncil.ie with a picture and location please.
