A flag-raising ceremony will take place on Rinroe Beach near Carrowteigue in north Mayo this Thursday to mark the beach gaining the Green Coast Flag.

This Summer, Mayo has achieved Blue Flag status for ten beaches and seven Green Coast Awards, with Rinroe the newest addition to the awards.

The Green Coast award, operated by An Taisce, is a symbol of environmental excellence and is awarded to beaches which have excellent water quality and are also prized for their natural, unspoilt environment.

The Green Coast Flag will be raised on Thursday at an event on Rinroe Beach, which runs from 1.30 to 3pm.
