PRESS INFO -- Ballybunion’s Big Beach Clean
Clean Coasts groups throughout Ireland will gather this weekend to join the movement for litter free seas and be part of the world’s largest coastal cleanup event and marine litter survey. The event takes place every year on the 3rd weekend in September and to date nearly 12 million people and counting have been part of “The International Ocean Conservancy Coastal Cleanup”. In 2016 alone, nearly 800,000 volunteers in over 90 countries removed 8,193 tonnes of marine litter from the world’s oceans!  
The European Circular Ocean project has joined forces with Clean Coasts and Ballybunion Tidytowns this weekend as part of this international movement to combat marine pollution. The “Big Beach Cleanup” will take place at Lady’s Beach in Ballybunion THIS Sunday 17th of September at 12noon.
Funded under the ERDF Interreg VB Northern Periphery and Arctic (NPA) Programme, the Circular Ocean project seeks to highlight the opportunities for recovery and reuse of waste Fishing Nets & Rope, with a view to benefiting local economies.  
If you are in the Ballybunion area on Sunday, wrap up well, dust off the wellies and do your bit to help fight the scourge of marine pollution on our beautiful coastlines.
