The Irish public who plan on attending beaches over the summer have been warned to be extra careful whilst taking a dip in the sea as highly dangerous jellyfish is lurking near Irish shores
According to wildlife experts, Irish coastal areas have a new resident in the form of the Lion’s Mane jellyfish, which can grow up to two meters in length.
The poisonous jellyfish which is normally seen of coastal areas in North America has been reportedly seen along coastline’s in Dublin, Cork and Donegal.
Experts are advising people to avoid the jellyfish at all costs as its deadly sting can put people into anaphylactic shock.
It’s thought the recent change in climate combined with warmer waters has led to the jellyfish to come to our shores.
