Postponed: Two Tree Talks Evening in Skerries: 12 March 2020

This event has been postponed due to health concerns arising from the spread of COVID-19 (particularly now the WHO is declaring it a pandemic and there is a rapid increase in cases). A new date will be found as soon as possible.

Skerries welcomes √Čanna N√≠ Lamhna (The Tree Council) & Kevin Halpenny (Fingal County Council) for a Tree- and Biodiversity- Focused Evening

Are you interested in trees and how they can contribute to life and biodiversity in our town?

On Thursday 12 March, at 8 p.m. (doors open 7.40 p.m.), in the Little Theatre, well-known environmentalist and media personality √Čanna N√≠ Lamhna (Vice Chair of The Tree Council) will talk about “The Importance of Trees” – followed by a presentation by Fingal County Council’s Parks Superintendent Kevin Halpenny.

Kevin is in charge of the current review of Fingal’s Tree Strategy and will be talking about “Biodiversity and the Draft Fingal Tree Strategy.”

After the two presentations, there will be time for discussion and questions and answers. 

This promises to be a very interesting evening. It is organised by a number of groups with an active interest in trees in Skerries: The Skerries Community Association, Skerries Tidy Towns, Crann Padraig, and Sustainable Skerries. The organisers hope it will inform significantly their input into the draft Tree Strategy, which is currently being drawn up.
