Last year I mentioned that my home village Geashill was running a Trees for Family scheme, as part of its general Tidy Towns project.
Well Geashill was awarded Joint Winner of the Tree Project Award and my dad was present to accept the award (with his co-conspiritor Michael Guinan!).
The photo below was taken at the recent Midlands and East Regional Tidy Towns Event held in Skerries. The Tree Project Award is sponsored by the Tree Council of Ireland.
The Award was presented by Dr. James Reilly, T.D. and Minister for Children and Youth Affairs and Mr. Brendan Fitzsimons CEO, Irish Tree Council to Michael Guinan and Pat Foley for joint winner Geashill, Co. Offaly
