Adventuring to hard to reach stretches of coastline to pick up litter…
At 11am we kayaked from Milk harbor north of Grange out to Dernish Island.
10 volunteers and 2 hours 20 bags of rubbish = 1 clean island.
We arrived back on the mainland at 1.30pm.
At 3pm 10-15 volunteers met at Streedagh Beach and went trail running while picking up litter #plogging, cleaning 13km of coastline.
About 6 actually ran the rest went to the nearby smaller beach.
At 3.30pm a team of 7 met at Island view riding stables and went on horseback down trawluath beach and cleared a stretch of hard to reach sand dunes.
The majority of rubbish collected was fishing debris and plastic bottles, lobster pots, ropes, plastic containers, and 20-gallon drums.
The entire event was organised by the Havin’ A Laugh charity and donations received amounted to just over €400.
All the activity providers donated their time:
Northwest Adventure Tours (Trailrunning)
Sligo Kayak Tours (kayaking)
Island View Riding stables (Horseriding).
The event was supported by Clean Coasts and Seastainability.
