A GROWING number of people are stripping off across Ireland to help themselves cope with the woes of life in lockdown.
According to Newstalk, there has been a surge in the number of people showing an interest in joining the Irish Naturist Association.
This has been partially attributed to the Covid-19 restrictions in place across the country, with many exploring new ways of letting off steam and enjoying their natural surroundings.
The Irish Naturist Association is reporting a 31% increase in new memberships between May and July.
Speaking to The Hard Shoulder, member Ciara Boud cited the fact many have more free time on their hands during lockdown to explore such options.
“Maybe people had more time to be online, they’re looking up stuff,” she said.
“The Irish Naturists have a very good presence on Instagram or Facebook or their YouTube channel.”
