Coca-Cola Clean Coasts Week returns this June and at Port Beach volunteers are hosting a sports on the beach competition followed by a beach clean-up.

The competition will take place on Tuesday, June 4th and everyone is welcome to get involved in the 'Do Good, Feel Good' Clean Coasts Week 2019. The event at Port is one of 300 events taking place all over Ireland between June 1st and 10th to encourage the whole country to protect and celebrate our beautiful coastline.

Aidan Gray, Clean Coasts Officer for Louth and Meath, commented: 'Litter, and particularly marine litter, has a huge long term negative impact on our environment. Without a doubt, it can also affect our enjoyment of our local beaches and coastal activities. Coca-Cola Clean Coasts Week has always been about communities coming together to protect our precious coastlines so that we and future generations can enjoy it. This year we're excited to extend that invitation to sporting communities, which can be a great force for good in society, and we hope that they will help contribute to this year being the most successful Coca-Cola Clean Coasts Week yet.'
