IT IS TECHNICALLY summer in Ireland, though with the recent weather it is hard to tell.

The rain and cool temperatures tend not to turn everyone off having a dip in the sea, however, and there is good news for bathers today as the EPA has classified the water at over 100 beaches as Excellent. 

Just five locations were classified as Poor, including three in Dublin. 

So we want to know: Will you swim in the seas around Ireland this summer?

Poll Results:

Yes (4606)
No (3224)
I'm not sure (649)
