Seamus scoops a national award
A Sligo man has just scooped an Ocean Hero Award from the Clean Coasts Programme.
Surf instructor Seamus McGoldrick was named the Individual of the year in the national competition at a ceremony last week in The Royal College of Physicians, Dublin.
This year Clean Coasts Ocean Hero Awards are celebrating 11 years honouring the invaluable contribution coastal communities and individuals make to conserving our spectacular coastline.
Spokeswoman Sinead McCoy said: "Over the past 11 years the Clean Coasts programme's Ocean Hero Awards have really brought to the fore the remarkable work and wonderful coastal celebration events that Clean Coasts volunteers have been involved in along the Irish coastline. NorthWest Coastal Clean Ups also won a Ocean Hero Award for Idea of the Year.
