Pat Gallagher of the Irish Naturist Association welcomes an official beach to bare it all.
If you’ve ever been to a beach in Ireland, there’s a good chance you were clothed — mostly because of the weather and because it probably didn’t cross your mind.
Even if it did, until recently, it was technically a crime to be nude on a beach in Ireland.
But that law was struck down in 2014. Now Irish nudists are celebrating another step forward: a sign informing people that there might be naked bathers at their first official nude beach.
It’s a secluded spot just outside Dublin called Hawk Cliff.
