Balbriggan Tidy Towns Cleaning up 3 Beaches for The Clean Coasts Programme

A big turnout for our Big Beach clean this morning: Larry, Alex, Joe, Diarmuid, John, David, Helena, Zsuzsa and her kids, Thomas, Lucy, Malachy, Toni and her great helper, Zoe and her mum, Niall, Petra and her great helper, myself and Ella (apologies for forgetting some names).

We cleaned the main beach then we divided into two groups; one cleaned the King's

Strand up to the Sailor's grave the other group tackled the stoney beach up towards Hampton Cove.

We removed approximately 10 bags of rubbish plus an assortment of shopping trollies, tyres, rope, lobster pots and timber.

Our work was rewarded by Super Valu. Gerry Buckley generously supplied hotdogs, cake and drinks to the well deserving team.

Thank you to everyone for a great morning and for making a difference to our coastal environment. Special thanks goes to Zsuzsa and kids for travelling from Artane to help out. Much appreciated.
