2015 ‘Farming & Biodiversity’ Award Winners!

Dec 9, 2015

After difficult judging, we are happy to announce the Winners of the 2015 ‘Farming & Biodiversity’ Competition which is produced with IASTA and EPACatchments.  This year’s theme was ‘Farming & Water Quality – Best Practice’ which yielded some very knowledgeable and interesting entries.  There were some great images of controlling water run-off from farmyards, utilising rain water for watering animals as well as supplying an innovative Donegal bathtub, but the Judges’ favourites were efforts that had been undertaken to BUFFER the impacts of nutrients and silts from reaching wild rivers and streams.


5 winners each receive a Samsung Galaxy Tablet.  Our congratulations goes to the winners, their teachers and schools:


Matty Casey, Millstreet Community School (Teacher: Sarah Buckley)
Christopher Merton, Wesley College (Teacher: Iain Wallace)
Aoife Buckley, Coláiste Mhuire Buttevant (Teacher: Patrick Curtin)
Sean Grayson, St. Peters College (Teacher: Willie White)
