No Lifeguards on many North Dublin beaches

Just a heads up that we were battered overnight

no Lifeguards on Malahide, Donabate,  Portrane, Rush North. There's a hut floating off Portmarmock......

We always recommend staying clear of the sea after heavy rain , may it's a weekend for Netflix

Lots of great pictures, will update this evening. Send on any you have

Plans, plans, plans and jellyfish



The  most recent Government changes impact how we will look at our restart. 

It's impossible to predict how exactly this will look but it's safe to say that our plans are that we will aim to pick up where we left off albeit with a lot of changes required to manage sthoee in a covid-19 environment

Traditionally we restart later in September with new swimmers at the end of the month but at this stage we expect that we will

- Send a questionnaire to swimmers to engage on our back to pool plans
- Publish our covid-19 charter
- Have a zoom (or similar) meetup and parents Q&A
- Then announce our plans and dates

We are getting enquiries for new starts, anyone wanting to join needs to register on the join section linked from our website or blog if it's a sibling of an existing swimmer note this on the application. It helps.

It's really hard to be optimistic at the moment, we've touching six months off  but we are entirely independent which means we can adapt. We continue to ask that you take your information from our website and email only, it's amazing that people make stuff up but they do, if it's not published its not true….

The Crew continue to meet up online weekly and send their love to you all !

And finally there's been some jellyfish questions. Yes we do serve them at the beach BBQ (they look like congealed bonjella and taste of bad dreams) but when you meet them on the beach and are scared of stings it's.........

Purple / all white  - you should be all right

Black, orange, red, blue – will all sting you  


Regardless of colour don't pick 'em up unless you know what you are doing and do not eat them. Seriously, what's wrong with you people.

Lifesaving @DCU, @Claremont beach Howth, @home @sthoee.com


Hi all, 

We've written and held back communication after communication, week after week, for some time now.

This has been an interesting time for many of us and , for others, unspeakably sad. So many of our current and past members are in front line professions. It has been humbling to hear stories. 

Many reached out to sthoee during the period of lockdown, you will be happy to hear the crew have continued to meet up online weekly plugging into sthoee crew as far afield as Australia and the States. And we have had many online sessions including a memorable online pizza party on three continents to celebrate Richard's engagement (congrats!).

Beach Lifeguards had qualifications extended and we are now moving forward on a couple of fronts.

Over the next few weeks we will be sharing plans but, as you can guess, there are very real logistical challenges.

So there are a few housekeeping things we need to start with.

First of all we need you to be sure you are on the public mailing list. If you received this by email you are,  just sit tight.

If not  please register on the blog (link below) [mailings are cross published on the blog to if you choose not to subscribe]

In the next  week or so we will be issuing a questionnaire to  gather your thoughts around some ideas / plans we have and to give you the opportunity to ask questions and develop our (and your) ideas together with your input. 

We have a clear idea of where we want to get to but this will be a collective journey

The other important thing is to only take sthoee information from formal communication from us. All events , meetups and start up information will be published publicly, nobody will receive information from any other source. Promise.

Stay safe, swim on lifeguarded beaches, wear a mask, wash you hands

Look after yourself, your loved ones and your community

Game on

Remote lifesaving? We've a challenge for our Lifesavers

Hi all, got cabin fever yet?

We hope this finds you and yours safe and well

The sthoee crew met online instead of at the pool last night. Everyone is in good form and is safe and well.

We've been talking about the importance of getting updates from the HSE and going easy on the social media!

This week we are starting planning our open water programme, this pause and we and to be ready.

So what can you do this week.......


Well we have a challenge for all sthoee swimmers. We want you to design a new rescue aid, think big, you know sticks , you known ring buoys and torps. We want you to think of what would make a great rescue aid.

It can be a design based on what you use already, using something else as a recue aid or go wild use jet engines and drones.

You can work alone, with your family or another sthoee swimmer (but only online or on the phone!)

Mail your plan , your name , with or without a drawing to Inventors@sthoeelifeguardsdublin.com

Before Sunday at 630

Happy St Patrick's day, take care of yourself, your loved ones and your community

Sthoee

Sthoee@DCU


Hi All,


Events have overtaken us, the pool is closed up to the 29th so we are now on a break until the week after at the earliest.

 Look after yourselves, your loved ones and your community. 

Beach lifeguard registrations are staying live. We'll cross that bridge when we get to it.

We look forward to an evening when we get everyone back together again and can order a ridiculous amount of pizza

Keep checking in , keep in touch , keep safe


Sthoee
