In 2019 I became aware that far right agitators had created a film that included footage of me. They claimed that I was a paid government mole to facilitate the opening of Direct Provision centres. People in other communities considered it very useful when they found themselves in the midst of the minefield of aContinue reading “My Book is out!”

Left, Right, What’s it all about?
The political terminology of “right” and “left” were first used during the French Revolution in the 18th century as the politicians were sitting in the Parliament.
I got to know the “far right” during the spring of 2018 when the Direct Provision centre was proposed for Lisdoonvarna but I never knew the context. I got to know their tactics, their lies, the way they use peoples fear and confusion to further their own agenda.
I attended COP27 in Egypt, representing Feasta, Foundation for the Economics of Sustainability and the Irish Environmental Network. This is my report from my 9 days there. Reference to “we” includes Martin Vernon. Ahead of the 27th Conference of the Parties, Stop Climate Chaos prepared a briefing document.

Warning: Criminal Activity
Why doesn’t society act? Oblivious? Defiant? Busy? Lazy? Easier to scapegoat those sounding the alarm. Do you think the two activists wanted to throw paint at a picture?

Climate Action Plan 2023
Climate action plan 2023 is on the way. See what myself a few colleagues would like to see it include.
It’s September 2022 and the world has been transforming dramatically. In the two and a half years of covid19 there have been over 6 million deaths globally. Almost 7 months ago Russia invaded Ukraine. Lisdoonvarna welcomed more than 100 asylum seekers in 2018 and similarly welcomed Ukrainians in 2022. Both instances coincided with St PatricksContinue reading “Transformation”
It’s a grey day in the Burren and the birds are busy flittering around the pond in our Hares Corner. Great success was celebrated recently as over 7,000 trees were planted around Clare to make more space for nature; mini habitats to support wildlife in the Hares Corner project. Throughout Ireland work to restore habitats, hedgerowsContinue reading “Food Security”
Action on the #ClimateBill
I am requesting that you use your powers to defer this Bill until the amendments are given due consideration and debate.
I am also looking for clarification on what ‘regard for’ the EU means in the context of this Bill
Climate Bill’s Trojan Horse
The government’s amendments that in effect will allow politicians control how the scientists operate are nicely slotted in amongst the amendments proposed by others. That is some trojan horse. Attacking science and future generations with one blow.
