The Official Clean Coasts Launch, was recently held at Ring Rowing Club, Co.Cork. Present were: Rowing Ireland Offshore Vice Chair Margaurite Deasy, Clean Coasts Manager Sinead McCoy. Ring Rowing Club Chairperson Sharon Hurley, Committee and members.
Clean Coasts engages communities and organisations in the protection of Ireland’s beaches, seas and marine life. The programme is operated by the Environmental Education Unit of An Taisce.
Sinead McCoy said “She was absolutely delighted that all Rowing Ireland Clubs could sign up to partner with the Clean Coasts initiative” She also stated that “From my experience, Rowing Ireland Clubs are clearly passionate about the environment and water that they use on a daily basis in the love of their sport. Rowing Clubs are the Club members second home.”
Margaurite Deasy stated that the pollution of our aquatic environment is an issue that all clubs on the island of Ireland face, on a daily basis when they train. It was an easy decision for Rowing Ireland to actively engage and support this fantastic initiative that will have such a positive impact. The environment provides the water we row on, the nutrition we eat and the water we drink.
