MulkearLIFE is delighted to support our sister LIFE project’s Environmental Awareness Month which takes place in April. IRD Duhallow will host a whole series of events as part of its Environmental Awareness Month during April. The aim of events is raise awareness about the importance of our environment and promote positive environmental actions throughout Duhallow.
