ESB warns of dangers of swimming in local reservoirs
The ESB has warned people of the dangers of swimming in local ESB reservoirs.
A ESB spokesman said: "Ahead of the June bank holiday weekend and with the improving spell of warm weather, ESB would like to remind the general public of the dangers and potentially serious consequences of swimming in any ESB reservoir.
"These areas are not appropriate for swimming because of the risk of deep and fast-flowing waters, changing water levels and uneven ground.
These waters include the reservoirs at Poulaphouca in County Wicklow, Golden Falls and Leixlip in County Kildare, Inniscarra and Carrigadrohid in County Cork, the Ardnacrusha headrace and tailrace canal in County Clare and Assaroe, Lough Nacung and Lough Dunlewey in County Donegal.
"ESB would also like to remind the general public who use our lands for leisure activities such as fishing and walking to adhere to current social distancing guidelines."
A court has heard how a heavily pregnant woman and a mother of two robbed an 86-year-old man of €130 by forcibly entering his home and pushing him to the ground in Longford town over the weekend.
