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 provides a tractor and trailer, plus driver, to remove and dispose of the rubbish collected. The Dublin Port Company provides us with litter-picking equipment.  

Please dress according to the weather conditions (below) expected so be sure to wrap up well and bring a waterproof jacket. Sturdy footwear and thick socks are essential and rubber boots are always a good idea.  

Why not try to persuade a friend or a family member to join you? The more volunteers we have, the greater the amount of work that we can do. 


Clear sky with no rain forecast. Strong breeze of 11 m/s from west southwest. The forecast temperature will be very cold at 2 C. 

***Getting there by Car***

The Wooden Bridge across to Bull Island will be closed to traffic on Saturday morning 19th November from 10:00am until 1:00pm to facilitate the Clontarf Half Marathon and 5 mile event.

The group will still meet at the usual place but access for cars will be via the causeway road. Drive through the Service Entrance to Royal Dublin Golf Club on the right hand side of the causeway road and through the golf course grounds. You will exit at the Bull Wall close to the meeting point.

Please call Donal on 087 688 7468 should you have any queries.
