COCA-COLA Clean Coasts Week began last Saturday, June 1 and will run until Sunday, June 9.  

During the event the whole country will be encouraged to protect and celebrate our beautiful coastline by getting involved in one of 300 events taking place all over Ireland.

One of the events is taking place on Dollymount Strand, where you can join in a free beach yoga class at 10am this Saturday, June 8 or take part in a fun Poc Fada at 12noon that day.

The week is an annual celebration of Ireland’s shorelines and offers a moment to appreciate the work of thousands of volunteers who support Clean Coasts’ goals all year round. 

From revitalising beachside yoga to nature walks, beach clean-ups, seaweed workshops and fun family activities, there is something for everyone with a full schedule of events taking place across the island.

For the past nine years, Coca-Cola Clean Coasts Week has offered communities the opportunity to ‘Do Good’ and ‘Feel Good’, and this year it wants to extend a special invitation to Ireland’s sporting communities to get involved in the Clean Coasts mission.

Richard Curtin, Clean Coasts Officer for Dublin, said: “Litter, and particularly marine litter, has a huge long term negative impact on our environment. 

“Without a doubt, it can also affect our enjoyment of our local beaches and coastal activities. Coca-Cola Clean Coasts Week has always been about communities coming together to protect our precious coastlines so that we, and future generations can enjoy it.” 

Mr Curtin added: “This year we’re excited to extend that invitation to sporting communities, which can be a great force for good in society, and we hope that they will help contribute to this year being the most successful Coca-Cola Clean Coasts Week yet.”

With over 2,500 volunteers, over 150 volunteer groups and 16 events planned, there are many ways to get involved.
