25 February 2016, Brid Conneely, International Eco-Schools Director and Rachel Boyle International LEAF Director attended the first ever Eco-Schools Expo in Ireland!

An incredible event organised by a fantastic team and attended by inspiring students and teachers from all over Ireland.

President of Ireland, Michael D. Higgins attended with his wife, Sabina Higgins and gave a powerful speech, praising the schools for their huge efforts and talked about the importance of 'reconnecting'.

Exhibitions from schools filled the hall and informative talks were held throughout the day. Evelyn Cusack, RTÉ weather presenter, Deputy Head of Forecasting at Met Éireann and Secretary of the Irish Meteorological Society finished off the day with an interesting talk on weather and the changes throughout time.
