Greening festivals across Ireland

The widespread work by local authorities in greening various festivals around Ireland will be showcased at the AOIFE conference, the Association of Irish Festival Events, on 8 th November in Ballinasloe.

Pauline McDonagh of the Limerick Clare Kerry Regional Waste Management Office will outline the significant work that has been carried out in greening festivals and destinations across the Limerick Clare Kerry region, including the Cliffs of Moher visitor centre, Ireland’s most visited tourist attraction.

Dr Mary Stack of Cork County Council will give an overview of the work that has been done on the ground greening a number of events in Cork County including the Midleton Food Festival, the Cobh Peoples’ Regatta as well as the very popular destination, Fota Wildlife Park.
