Fringed water lily from Wild Flowers of IrelandKerry County Council says the quality of water in Lough Lein in Killarney is normal, despite an invasive species being present.
Biodiversity Ireland says the Fringed Water Lily can be found close to islands and headlands in the bay beside Ross Castle.
The bright yellow lily is classified as an invasive species, but it’s not expected to take over the lake as it only flourishes in slow-moving water and sheltered areas.
Kerry County Council says water samples taken from various points on the lake yesterday indicate that the water quality in the lake is good and is perfectly normal.
