A Great Evening with Éanna

The evening of Wednesday 8th June, Sustainable Skerries hosted Eanna ní Lamhna, botanist, educator and broadcaster on RTÉ radio’s Mooney Show, in the Little Theatre.

Eanna gave an extremely interesting talk on Climate Change, Peak Oil, Food and Water supply globally and with specific reference to Skerries. Eanna also related some of her experiences in Africa where the effects of climate change are very immediate and life threatening to tribal peoples who rely on seasonal rains to irrigate crops and trees to supply wood for cooking fuel.

It gave us all a sense that the peoples of the world are all linked by climate change.

We were accepting contributions for Vita a charity sponsored by Eanna, which works for Sustainable development in the Horn of Africa. Eanna has been in contact and has asked us to pass on her appreciation for the very generous donations on the evening.
