The National Sandcastle and Sculpturing Competition ris always a great day ot and draws crowds to Bettystown Beach.

The National Sandcastle and Sculpturing Competition returns to Bettystown Beach this Sunday 24th July.

This is one of the best family events of the summer – it gives children the chance to give expression to their creativity and their parents, mainly the Dads, get to be children once again.

Competition is usually fierce but the creations will only live on in photos because they are washed away by the incoming tide.

The categories are as follows:

  1. -Under 5's              
  2. -Under 8's
  3. -Under 13's
  4. -Family
  5. -Junior Sculpture
