Bumper Blue Year for NI Beach Awards

Northern Ireland’s beaches provide the perfect place for a fun day out, and today, 24th May, awarding body TIDY Northern Ireland, in association with Northern Ireland Tourist Board, announced that 11 beaches and 2 marina’s will fly the prestigious International Blue Flag and 11 beaches will fly the Seaside Award.

So, with the weather hotting up for summer, TIDY Northern Ireland is urging people to take a trip to an award winning beach and dip a toe in the sea or have a picnic. To help everyone find out where their nearest award winning beach or marina is TIDY Northern Ireland launched a special map at today’s event, which will be available online, via all Tourist Board Information Centres and at local beaches.

Mayor Charlie Casey said “I am delighted that Cranfield Beach has been recognised as an award winning beach through Blue Flag and Seaside Awards. The Blue Flag is a prestigious award which acts as a guarantee to our tourists that this beach is one of the best in Ireland’.
