Smugairleróin’ is the Irish word for ‘jellyfish’.
Rón means ‘seal’, and Smugairle is ‘thick spittle’ - so directly translated the Irish for jellyfish is ‘sealspittle’!
Ireland has 5 indigenous jellyfish:
The Lion’s Mane, Barrel, Blue, Common (or Moon), and Compass Jellyfish.
Sightings of jellyfish are increasing in numbers around the Irish coast, including sightings of The Portuguese Man-of-War which has a severe sting that is potentially lethal.
