Lifeguard cover has resumed at Clare beaches.
Full-time cover will be present at the nine Blue Flag beaches in the county. This includes, Ballycuggeran, Cappa Pier, Fanore, Kilkee, Lahinch, Mountshannon, Spanish Point, White Strand Doonbeg and White Strand Miltown Malbay.
Cover is to continue on Saturdays and Sundays throughout the month of June. Full-time cover will also be extended to Bishop’s Quarter, Seafield and Ballyalla. Carrigaholt Beach which has been awarded a Green Coast award will not be covered by lifeguards.
All locations will also be monitored by life guards during July and August plus each weekend in September.
“Each year, Clare County Council’s Environment Section, in conjunction with staff from the relevant Municipal District, work to ensure that the strict criteria are met to achieve these prestigious awards. We would like to remind people to play their part and help retain our Blue Flag or Green Coast beach status for next year, by keeping our beaches litter-free when visiting over the summer period,” Brendan Flynn of the Council’s environment section stated.
