Another question I was unable to answer was is there any additional risk from being in deep(er) water. As far as I know there isn't really except for boat/traffic and possibly lamprey!!
Where was the beach they got bit at? Didn't think there was much in Irish waters that could cause a reaction like that?
Killiney beach. I'm not sure about any higher risk in deeper waters. I know there are bigger fish, blue sharks, port beagal
Sharks, but I've never heard of anyone being bitten. I heard a swim race was cancelled once because there were a lot of blue sharks on part of the course.
I've swam alot of miles in sea around ireland was only stung by jellies and sampled by a baby seal, I wouldn't go so far as to say I was bitten as it didn't break the skin
