Greater Garda enforcement is needed to end the public consumption of alcohol on beaches.

It comes after Gardaí were called to the scene of a "brawl" that broke out at Burrow Beach yesterday.

Dublin-Fingal Cllr Brian McDonagh says this isn't new for Sutton residents who live nearby.

He says bye-laws against the public consumption of alcohol need to be enforced.

He said: "If you know that you're going to get your booze ceased when you go to the beach, then you won't bring it, and a whole heap of our problems will go down."

Gardaí were called to the scene in Sutton and remained on site until the large public disturbance was cleared.

No arrests were made and patrols in the area are continuing over the Summer.

Gardaí in Raheny are appealing to anyone who may have information in relation to this incident to contact them at Raheny Garda Station on 01 666 4300, or the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111.
