Council monitoring algal growth on Lough Leane

Following investigations, Kerry County Council has identified algal growth along part of the shoreline of Lough Leane in Killarney.

In accordance with protocols for these situations, precautionary signage is being erected at locations around Lough Leane and those who frequent the shoreline are being advised to exercise caution and not to allow dogs to enter the water.

There are indications of further warm and humid conditions which may give rise to further algal blooms at other shoreline locations. Kerry County Council will continue to monitor this very closely.

It should be stressed however that Lough Leane is currently considered to be in very good condition and that the development of algal growths is due to the exceptionally warm weather that has been experienced over the last few weeks
