Galway City Council has today issued water quality results for Ballyloughane and Grattan beaches, with ‘Excellent’ test results for both.
The council issued warning notices for both beaches last Friday ahead of heavy rain over the weekend.
A status yellow weather warning for heavy rain was in place for all of Ireland on late Saturday and early Sunday.
It was expected that runoff from the rain could lead to elevated bacteria levels, and people were advised to avoid splashing or swallowing any water.
Further water samples were taken from both beaches on Monday, and the results have now come back as ‘Excellent’ quality.
