Tá roinnt smugairle an tseoil (Physalia physalis) tugtha faoi deara le cúpla lá anuas ag Trá Bhá na hEornan,  agus tar éis dul i gcomhairle leis an FSS eisíodh Fógra Réamhrabhaidh ag tabhairt comhairle don phobal fanacht amach uathu, & gan teacht i dteagmháil leis na smugairlí róin seo. Eisíodh an Fógra Réamhrabhaidh ar an 14/09/20.

Cuirtear in iúl don phobal gur féidir leis an smugairle róin a bheith i láthair ar an gcladach agus san uisce. D'fhéadfadh an saghas smugairle róin seo, smugairle an tseoil, goimh phianmhar a thabhairt agus dá bhrí sin ba cheart teagmháil a sheachaint. Cuirfear nuashonruithe ar na meáin shóisialta; ar shuíomh Gréasáin Chomhairle Contae Chorcaí agus ar www.beaches.ie.
