Tom Cunningham said “There is a lot of hard work goes into earning the Blue Flag. I would like to especially thank and draw attention to the work of Clogherhead Development Group who do a wonderful job in keeping the beach and facilities clean and to such a high standard.”
The Blue Flag is one of the world’s most recognized eco-labels and has been awarded in 49 countries around the world.
Cllr Cunningham continued “this award is a source of great pride for the community and to have the Blue Flag flying over Port Beach is a very welcome sight” and added with a smile “but one we are used to as this is the tenth year in a row it has been awarded.”
Tom Cunningham also thanked Louth County Council for all their help in helping to secure the awarding of the Flag.
