The National Virtual Sandcastle Competition 2021.

We were overwhelmed this year with the number of entries which speaks to the event’s continued success. We have hosted this event on Bettystown Beach, Co. Meath, since 2003. This year’s virtual competition was intended to be a COVID-SAFE alternative with physical distancing for public safety.  Hopefully we will resume our spot on the beach for 2022 and get back to enjoying our great natural resource together.

  • 1st Prize – €250 – The Burnaska Family from Loughshinny, Co. Dublin

  • 3rd Prize – €50 – The Costello Family from Derrynane, Co. Kerry
  • Junior 1st Prize – €50 – Euan Farrell from Burren, Co. Clare

This year’s judge was Jenny O’Reilly from Fáilte Ireland.
