Fears for Lifeguards for Clare Beaches

Clare’s beaches could be without lifeguards this summer…

The Government’s public sector recruitment ban looks set to affect those who protect the country’s swimmers.


The Irish Independent says county councils around Ireland are waiting to hear if they can go ahead and hire lifeguards for 127 beaches for this summer, including Clare’s beaches

It’s understood that the Department of Environment is hoping to negotiate with the Department of Finance to excuse lifeguards from the recruitment ban.
