Bray Head has gone on fire again – and gardaí are advising people to steer clear of the famed cliff walk, which wraps around the coastal side of the hill, for safety reasons.
Traffic services have said that the smoke is stretching all the way north to the airport, however there are no reports of flight disruptions at present.
Photos and videos from the scene, however, show that the blaze is building in strength – the latest in a number of fires to engulf the area in recent days.
