WELCOME BY JONES FOR WICKLOW REGAINING BLUE FLAG

Fine Gael Councillor George Jones has welcomed the three Blue Flags for Wicklow.

In particular I am delighted that Brittas Bay has regained the flag lost last year and of course that Greystones south beach continues to hold a flag.

I will continue to urge Wicklow County Council in conjunction with the Towns Councils of Bray, Arklow and Wicklow to look at the options of increasing Blue Flags or similar type designation for places like Bray, Wicklow and beaches like Kilcoole and Newcastle.

The Blue Flag is very much now one of the most widely know, most recognised and valued ecolabels throughout Europe and beyond. The Blue Flag can be used as a major marketing tool for our tourism projects concluded George Jones
