NEWS / 16 May 2018

Tuesday,15th May and Kealan Doyle (Save our Seahorses) and Anne Cassin (RTE Nationwide) arrived in Stratford for the Green Schools Action Day.

The Green Schools Committee organised a most fantastic Green Schools Action Day on Tuesday, 15th May. Kealan Doyle spoke passionately about why we must save our seahorses around the world. He spoke about the importance of breeding seahorses in captivity to ensure their survival while balancing that with medicinal uses of seahorses. He also explained about the native Irish seahorse. There were excellent questions from the floor and at the end everyone was encouraged to look more closely at seahorses.

Anne Cassin also spoke about her involvement with sustaining the environment through her involvement with the National Tidy Towns competition with RTE Nationwide. We watched a short documentary of how the coastal town of Skerries won the competition outright in 2016 through many sustainability initiatives.

Many thanks to the Green Schools Committee and Ms Donohoe for organising such a great event.
