Ballynamona Beach Access

We are a community of neighbours and friends living in Ballynamona, Kilmuckridge asking Wexford County Council to provide safe and proper access at all times to our local public beach

Why is this important?

We are a community of neighbours and friends living in Ballynamona, Kilmuckridge asking Wexford County Council to provide safe and proper access at all times to our local public beach
The existing steps that lead to the beach get cut off by the tides leaving the beach inaccessible for much of the day particularly during the winter months . The only way down to the beach during these tidal times is to climb across the large steep boulders that were put in place when the current steps were installed .

Beach users risk injury every single time they are forced to access the beach by climbing the large boulders which are often wet and slippery

It is absolutely impossible for anybody frail, infirm, elderly, disabled, injured, in a wheelchair, pregnant, with small children in buggys ( the list goes on ) to use the beach at these times unless safe and proper access is provided

It is also of major concern that in the case of an emergency it would be difficult for emergency services to access the beach to help a member of the public if need be

At a time when we are being asked to stay close to home, local public outdoor spaces are essential to our health and wellbeing .

Our community needs now, more than ever, Wexford County Council to provide safe access for all to our local beach.
