The pupils of the 5th and 6th classes in the girls national school, under the guidance of the Green Schools Co-ordinator Úna Meehan, were narrowly beaten (by half a point!) into second place in the Water Explorers Program. The Water Explorer Program is a fun interactive educational resource program, aimed at National School children to learn about water issues and to act on them. http://www.globalactionplan.ie/education/water-explorer/

It may look beautiful but Japanese knotweed is proving to be a major environmental headache in both Cork and Kerry. However, help is at hand as Dr Ilse Corkery, RaptorLIFE Project Scientist at IRD Duhallow has, with her team completed an intense couple of months treating Japanese knotweed in Duhallow. As part of their work, “Do not cut” signs were erected throughout Duhallow including roads in Kerry, which are within the project area of the upper Blackwater catchment and the Mullaghereiks SPA (Special Protected Area).
