National Tree Week planting in Ballyleague

National Tree Week planting in Ballyleague

It was National Tree Week last week and the pupils of Ballyleague National School were out and about helping members of the local tidy towns committee get in on the act.

The children - all aged Under 12 - planted five oak trees in the Cluain Dara housing estate in Ballyleague and told local residents of the role that these new trees will play in dealing with carbon emissions in the atmosphere.

Ballyleague Tidy Towns committee attained the trees with the support of Roscommon County council and will be planting trees throughout the Shannonside town in the coming days.
