From Wikipedia:

"Colpomenia peregrina, sometimes referred to by its vernacular names Oyster Thief and Bladder Weed is a brown seaweed not native to the British Isles, but recorded in Ireland since 1934. It appears to have been introduced from the Pacific and was first noticed in Europe in 1906 on oyster beds."

Thanks to David Fenwick for confirming this - and for having a website that allowed me to tentatively ID it.
