Clean- up Postponed

Posted by Rob & Triona Foley on March 2, 2014 at 6:45 AM

Day 2 of the Pink Rock clean- up of Ger Dohertys field has been postponed due to bad weather and high tides. Thanks to everybody who came down and helped yesterday, it made a huge difference with only a very small area now left to clean. Unfortunately today, the field is flooded again, though thankfully it's just water and  there's no rubbish floating in it again. Clean-up of the area at the Lagoon is postponed until further notice. 


Posted by Rob & Triona Foley on February 28, 2014 at 4:45 AM


Ger Doherty has given us the use of  his field regularly on the Pink Rock, and recently in the high tides a lot of debris has washed into the field. As a THANK YOU to Ger, we have organised a clean up of the field on this Saturday (tomorrow!) and Sunday from 2.30pm. Bin bags and gloves have been provided, so what we really need now is our good people to step up to the plate, and give an hour or two of their time on either day to help clean up the field. Grab ...
