By Bus:            Take the Route 130 bus from Lower Abbey Street. 

Bus Stop:         Get off at the Wooden Bridge - ask the bus driver - and then walk for 5 minutes onto the island.

Duration:          Two hours.

Equipment:       Litter pickers, bag hoops, rubbish bags, and gloves are provided.

Work areas:      The beach; sand dunes; inner shore, and causeway.  

Dublin City Council will provide a tractor and trailer, plus a driver, to remove and dispose of all the rubbish collected by volunteers. The Dublin Port Company will provide litter-picking equipment, such as litter-pickers, bin bag hoops, rubbish bags and gloves. 

The forecast for Saturday is heavy rain with a strong wind. It will also be cold with a forecast temperature of 7 degrees. 

Wrap up well and wear a good waterproof jacket. Good footwear is also advised, thick socks and rubber boots are always a good idea!

Don’t forget to spread the word to family, friends and neighbours. Extra volunteers have a direct impact on the amount of work that can be done. Recent heavy rainfall means that the beach is quite heavily littered at present. This is because the River Liffey and River Tolka carry litter into Dublin Bay which is then carried back ashore on the tide.
