Minister for Environment, Climate and Communications Eamon Ryan TD will visit Clare next week.
On Thursday, February 10, Minister Ryan will attend ‘In conversation on Climate’, a public event for the people of Clare, hosted by Clare Green Party Senator Róisín Garvey.
This is a free and public event, beginning at 8.30pm in The Old Ground Hotel. Everyone is welcome to attend and questions will be taken from the audience.
On Friday Minister Ryan will give a Climate Action Plan briefing to county councillors in the Council Chamber.
In addition, he will join the Gaelscoil Mhíchíl Cíosóg Walking bus, visit public realm in Ennis and a social housing retrofit project and a visit to Shannon and the airport.
Senator Garvey said, “It is great that my Green Party colleague Minister Eamon Ryan, the Minister for Climate, is taking the time to speak to Clare councillors on the Climate Action Plan.
“In fact, he hopes to attend every council chamber in Ireland. I am delighted to also host a public event while he is in Clare. Clare is one of the most vulnerable counties in Ireland when it comes to climate change because of our long coastline.
“It is really important that we have action from the ground up and that we understand the challenge we face as a county and what we can do with government support to help make our county more resilient and that the possibilities around doing so can lead to a better county with better air quality, warmer homes, clean water, local secure jobs, thriving farms and small businesses.”
