One of south Dublin’s most popular beaches has its coveted Blue Flag status back after a four-year hiatus.
Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council was celebrating after both Seapoint and Killiney – which last held a Blue Flag in 2016 – were featured in today’s announcement by An Taisce.
A new record of 93 Blue Flags and 63 Green Coast Awards were handed out to beaches and marinas for the 2021 bathing season.
The Blue Flag, which first originated in France in 1985, is one of the world’s most recognised eco-labels. The programme aims to promote sound economic management of beaches, marinas and inland bathing waters.
