Laragh & Glendalough Tidy Towns

We would like to thank ReWild Wicklow for teaming up with us planting 50 mixed native trees in protected mesh guards on this stretch of NPWS land at the Wicklow Gap junction. 

The trees and most of the additional materials have been funded from gift certificates bought on the ReWild Wicklow website by people all across Wicklow at Christmas. 

Some of our members attended the County Wicklow Public Participation Network event presentation on climate and environment in Wicklow town on March 23rd and found the discussions very informative.
