VIDEO: One of Ireland's best beaches totally wrecked by litter

This is absolutely not on.

Ireland has been enjoying an unusual period of heat and sunshine over the past two weeks, but the increased activity is taking a toll on our beaches.

Wicklow's Brittas Bay, surely one of Ireland's most popular beaches, was left in an absolute state by those who visited the beach yesterday.

A video shared on the Facebook page Brittas Bay Beach Care gives a glimpse at the extent of the rubbish left on the shore on Friday.

Other posts on the page claim that people were drinking and throwing their beer bottles into the sea.

Because those at the beach didn't pick up after themselves, the Brittas community has been forced into organising a beach sweep on Sunday evening between 7pm and 8pm.
