Charity Event and Surf & Soul

Aloha and welcome to the Sligo Surf Blog

This is Seamus Mc Goldrick from Sligo Surf Experience. Myself and the team want to say a big thank you to all our friends and customers for making 2022 another great summer season. The summer may have ended, the kids may be back in school but the glorious waves in Strandhill are still here. That is one thing that will never change.

Focus Ireland fundraiser

At the end of every summer season we like to give back a little bit by organising a charity surf lesson. We have raised money for Breast Cancer Ireland, Sligo Hospice and Pieta House. This year's chosen charity is Focus Ireland, which was set up to tackle homelessness in Ireland. This world-class Irish charity was set up by Sister Stan in 1985. As a society, we need to care about our homeless. The Irish are one of the most charitable nations on Earth. But we need to tackle the problems we have in our own country first before we can help anyone else.

When: this Sunday, September 4th at 4 pm
