In what is most likely the final clean-up of the season, the Peninsula Marine Litter Project are heading to two spots along the north Louth coast this Saturday.

They are tackling a stretch of coast at Annaloughan at the bottom of L70834 from 1pm to 3pm (turn right at start of 60km Lordship zone coming from Dundalk).

There will also be a team cleaning the shoreline at Bellurgan Point starting from the Blue Achor at the same time.

Local residents are invited to go along and help remove litter and rubbish from these beaches, making them more attractive places for walkers and also eliminating the risk posed to wildlife by dumped plastics.

All those interested are asked to bring their own protective gloves and to dress for the weather. Bin bags will be provided.

The quad and trailer purchased by the group earlier this summer with funding secured by Cllr Antoin Watters will be available to help remove rubbish from the beach.

These final clean ups will see the entire north Louth coast from Omeath to Bellurgan cleaned in less than six months.
