  • News - Termination of lifeguard service 2017

  • Unfortunately, due to unavailability of personnel, the decision has been taken to close Bonmahon and Ardmore beaches prior to their due end date of the 3rd September to enable us to fulfil the blue flag criteria and maintain cover on the Blue Flag beaches.

    ARDMORE: 7 p.m. on Friday 1st September, 2017.

    BONMAHON: 7 p.m. on Thursday, 31st August, 2017.
