A brand new national storytelling competition ‘Stories from the Waterside’…
Be Summer Ready
During the summer months, Ireland’s waterways and beaches become very popular. More people visit the countryside, engage in outdoor pursuits, visit family farms or take holidays abroad.
With these activities there are associated risks and a new booklet form the Irish government provides information on these. In addition, people die in Ireland in drowning accidents, farm accidents, on our roads or succumb to summer related illnesses.
This booklet includes a link to www.beaches.ie
Beaches.ie shares the latest information on over 200 bathing waters sampled by local authorities during the bathing water season, which runs from 1st June to 15th September. Information on weather, tides and amenities and accessibility are also available.
This campaign is part of the Government of Ireland initiative to provide information to the general public on issues which may affect them during the summer months in Ireland. The campaign compliments a long standing and very successful “Be Winter Ready” public information campaign.
