Save our Seafront (SOS) is a voluntary, non party-political, community organisation established in 2002 based in Dun Laoghaire, Co Dublin, Ireland.
We are committed to protecting our coastal and marine environment and to preserving our foreshore in public ownership for the continued access & enjoyment of the people. We take part in & make submissions to any public consultations relating to these areas, and campaign to oppose any unsuitable development on our seafront and foreshore. (The foreshore is the seabed and shore below the line of high water of ordinary or medium tides and extends outwards to the limit of twelve nautical miles - approx 22.24 km).
Our particular focus is the Dun Laoghaire area, but our interest extends to Ireland's entire foreshore, coastal & seafront regions. Our organisation is a member of the Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown Public Participation Network
Save our Seafront committee members & supporters campaign on a voluntary basis on various issues relating mainly to the wider Dun Laoghaire and Dublin Bay seafront areas. The Dun Laoghaire area is fortunate to have one of the most beautiful harbours in the world with a backdrop of a stunning bay.
We in SOS see it as our brief to defend the integrity of this heritage, to hand it on intact to the next generation and to ensure that public access is always maintained on the seafront, which belongs to the public.
We coordinate our efforts with other local & national groups who wish to protect our coastline, including environmental & wildlife groups as well as business & tourism interests.
