Pupils, parents and teachers at Radharc Na Mara NS in Mervue have taken part n a successful ‘National Spring Clean’ around the school’s grounds in the city.

The school teamed up with Galway City Council to take part in the initiative which saw a major clean-up of the area around the Walter Macken Road.

So far, 45 groups in Galway city have registered for the National Spring Clean – Ireland’s most popular and successful anti-litter initiative.

The campaign encourages everyone to actively participate and take responsibility for litter each spring by carrying out clean-ups in their own local areas.

Speaking about the clean-up, Tiarnan McCusker, Environmental Awareness Officer with Galway City Council, said that Walter Macken Road was mentioned in a recent IBAL survey as an area that was heavily littered.

“Galway City Council are reaching out to Schools, Residents Associations and community groups in areas mentioned in the IBAL report so that they can sign up to either National Spring Clean or indeed Galway City Councils own Community litter clean up program and do their own regular clean-ups,” he said.

“We are delighted to have collaborated with the ‘Picker Pals’ from Radharc Na Mara and the area is now looking clean and green again.”
