Lifeguards back on the beaches

With the return of professional lifeguards on the beaches we can be
sure summer is here, lots of Sthoee faces around the place ! When
Fingal coco published their new water safety feature in fingal news,
delivered throughout the county there were one or two faces you might
recognise !!

Rember the basics...,
Don't swim alone
Take safety advice
Learn how to help

No Sunday swim - have a great bank holiday !

Sthoee online - Update

Due to circumstances outside our control Sthoee online will be down for a while :-(
We'll be hanging here for a while
# update : we had a hostile attack on the site , given its size (5000 files!) we are going to do a detailed review before putting it up again
#update 2 : why not fill in the questionnaire while you are here !
# update 3: we now know that over the weekend a hostile attack on our hosting provider in the US infected the site, we are told the attack originated in Russia and impacted a number of other sites. We aim to put a rebuild up at the weekend with some minor work ahead of that.
