NORTHSIDE beaches received a spruce up as part of a national event to make a positive impact on the environment. 

Big Beach Clean 2019, supported by soup makers Cully & Sully, reported record breaking numbers. 

Over 300 clean-ups took place all around Ireland, engaging approximately 8,000 volunteers who removed at least 45 tonnes of marine of litter across the country. 

With the involvement of the National Spring Clean programme, the Big Beach Clean 2019 was opened to all residents of Ireland, including volunteering groups who are not based around the coast, who tackled marine litter at its source. 

In the Dublin area, over 70 clean-up events were organised, where approximately 2,000 volunteers got involved, removing almost 12 tonnes of litter all over the region.
