Clare County Council has warned against the dangers of cliff jumping following a video on social media showing a group of young people jumping from the Kilkee cliffs.

Taking to Twitter following the circulation of the video, the council said, "Clare County Council strongly advises the public NOT to engage in such activities. This is extremely dangerous and could have life-altering repercussions."

The council appealed to parents to remind their children about the dangers of cliff jumping and advised that the Kilkee diving boards are more suitable to diving and jumping "subject to the correct tidal conditions."

Signs are displayed along the cliffs, advising members of the public to refrain from jumping off the cliffs into the sea.

​The council also advised members of the public to swim only at one of Clare's 11 lifeguarded beaches

Stay safe, lads.
