Youghal Youth Clean Up On Claycastle Beach

by Denise FitzGerald

Let's hear it for the girls!

The Hot Spot Youth Cafe Youghal, in conjunction with Foróige, is a very strong and vibrant Youth Club which is located in Nagle House and run by a tremendous team of volunteers who provide full supervision at all times.
On Thursday evening last a Clean Up at Claycastle Beach was organised and, at 7.30pm, a group of almost twenty arrived armed with pickers, big plastic bags, gloves and other equipment, ready to get to work.
Then, armed with the multitude of paraphernalia, the youth of Youghal’s Hot Spot Cafe and their Supervisors headed onto the soft sand at Claycastle Beach and worked their way out to Redbarn, picking and packing every piece of debris along the way.
Supervisors Elizabeth and Geraldine told The East Cork Journal that it was the idea of the members themselves, who wanted to do something to "give back to the community”. "We have a great group of members" they said, "and we are always delighted when they want to do something for someone else".
Great work. Well done to the youth of Youghal and their dedicated Supervisors.
