Hope Expressed That More Blue Flags Will Be Awarded In Clare

It’s hoped even more of Clare’s beaches might be awarded Blue Flag status in the coming years.

The prestigious flag has been retained at nine beaches in the county – at Spanish Point, Lahinch, Kilkee, Fanore, Whitestrand Doonbeg, Whitestrand Miltown Malbay, Ballycuggaran, Cappa Pier and Mountshannon.

In addition, Ballyalla Lake, Bishops Quarter and Seafield have held on to their Green Coast status.


Clare’s Water Safety Officer Clare McGrath says a lot of work goes into getting these awards for their waterways.
