The waters at Northern Irish bathing sites are among the cleanest in Europe, the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs has said.
It said on Thursday all 26 bathing waters around the Province’s coast met strict European standards, with 16 of the 26 classed as ’excellent’ – a prerequisite for a Blue Flag Award. For full list see online.
A further six met the ‘Good’ standards and the rest met the ‘Sufficient’ standards.
The results are:
Portrush Mill – (West)
