family fun day 019A thoroughly enjoyable family fun day on the south beach in Brittas featuring beach sculpture and a clean-up which was enthusiastically supported by an unexpectedly large attendance with unseasonable summery weather conditions was enjoyed by all.

The various entries showed imagination and hard work. Coastcare groups from Arklow, Bray and the Wicklow coastcare group, Friends of the Murrough as well as pupils from the Star of the Sea Primary School, Brittas Bay and the Cave creche in Wicklow town arrived with their families.

Prizes were adjudicated and presented by Moira Byrne from Wicklow County Council and Aidan Gray from An Taisce, co-sponsors of the event. Coca-Cola and Arklow Waste Disposal also provided sponsorship for the event. Refreshments were supplied by Cullen Staunton’s local shop in Brittas as well as Woodroofe’s fruit and vegetable retailer.
