We got 99 problems, but a beach ain't one.

Finally we can crawl out from beneath our rocks and bask our milk bottle bodies in that never seen ball of fire in the sky.

It's the long weekend and when the sun is out we have the biggest feckin' ride of a country in the world! FACT.

Tra Mor in Spiddal, Co. Galway:

Amy in Galway says: "But what people don't know is it you go past the turn for that beach there's another one a couple of hundred yards down the road leading to a beach called Trá Beag. Very secluded and quiet but the best part is it doesn't get too deep until you get pretty far out so it's a great place to bring kids."

We are truly blessed to have the coastline we have in this country. Keep it clean.

There's enough plastic in the oceans. Thanks a million.
