This event on Fenit beach in County Kerry included tea and coffee from Mike’s Cafe for all participants.

There were 26 volunteers joining Clean Coasts and Fáilte Ireland in Fenit, removing four bags – approximately 25 kg – of marine litter in one hour.


Both the team and volunteers who joined were pleasantly surprised to find an already very cleaned beach and were delighted with how the day went. Fenit Conservation also joined the event, to give a brief talk about the work they do.

Rachel Geary from the Environmental Education Unit representing Clean Coasts said: “It was a great event and participants had a very positive attitude.”
