Ireland all set to open first nude beach

IRELAND - Ireland is all set to open its first nude-friendly beach. Hawk Cliff, in Dalkey, will reportedly undergo a nudist makeover.

Public notices are already being placed around the area near the beach, by the Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council, reported The Independent.

There will also be signs--which are expected to go up next month--at the area, which will alert people about the likelihood of seeing naked men and women on the beach.

The signs will read, ''nude bathers may be seen beyond this point,'' Irish Naturist Association(INA) chief Pat Gallagher told the Irish Sun.

Recently, Ireland underwent an amendment of their law on nudity. Section 18 of the Criminal Law Amendment Act 1935 had earlier stated, ''Every person who shall commit, at or near and in sight of any place along which the public habitually pass as of right or by permission, any act in such a way as to offend modesty or cause scandal or injure the morals of the community shall be guilty of an offence.''

The law was, however, declared unconstitutional by Ireland 's High Court in 2014, and is now null and void, mentioned
