XR call out the hypocrisy of Limerick County & City Council. Have you heard of Aughinish Alumina and Irish cement as an incinerator? Read on.
Climate action plan 2023 is on the way. See what myself a few colleagues would like to see it include.

Only 4 events have been held within the past 4 years so it falls on the current government to ensure that dialogue proceeds at pace. In a Covid19 world how will that happen?
