There are no snakes in Ireland..

Well, there are no native species..

A python measuring 10ft (3.08m) in length has been removed from the River Slaney.

Update iol reports that the python was “believed to have been about 10-years-old and recently dead” and adds

Dr Cathal Gallagher, Central Fisheries Board director of research, warned about keeping exotic and dangerous animals. “The real message from our point of view is that we have a lot of problems with invasive and non-native species,” he said. “Although this is very unusual.”

Good.
