Warning signs have been erected at Dun Laoghaire beach that poison has been laid to deal with an ongoing rat infestation. The poison has been laid as a precautionary measure and the area is still open to the public.
A number of rats have been spotted by locals on the beach and along the rocks near Queens Road. The rats may have been disturbed by ongoing building work in the area.
Signs have been erected by the HSE’s environmental health section beside the east pier notifying walkers that rat poison has been laid to deal with the appearance of the rodents. Because of the rocks this area of the pier is not used by bathers but dog walkers should be extra vigilant as the poison could be lethal to their four legged friend.
