The ESB is warning the general public of the dangers and potential serious consequences of swimming in any ESB reservoir.

The warning today coincides with the current fine weather spell and applies to a number of ESB facilities including one at Ardnacrusha in Clare.

The ESB is warning of risk of uneven ground, deep waters, changing water levels and fast-flowing waters.

These waters include the reservoirs at Poulaphoca and Golden Falls in Wicklow, Leixlip in Kildare, Inniscarra and Carrigadrohid in Cork, the Ardnacrusha headrace and tailrace canal in County Clare and Assaroe and Lough Nacung in County Donegal.
