A tree planting ceremony at Millennium Park in Kilrush signified the start of ESB National Tree Week in County Clare this week.
Cllr. John Crowe, Cathaoirleach of Clare County Council joined representatives from Kilrush Tidy Towns Committee and the Steering Group for Entente Florale, as well as students of Kilrush Community College and Kilrush Gaelscoil.
The theme of ESB National Tree Week 2015, which continues until Monday March 9th, is ‘I Love Trees’ and once again, Clare County Council and The Tree Council of Ireland are providing trees to community groups around the county who have expressed an interest in planting native trees in public areas.
ESB Tree National Week is sponsored by the ESB in association with Coillte. Further information is available from http://www.treecouncil.ie.
