We were happy to host RTÉ’s Prime Time team on a recent visit to Corca Dhuibhne. They wanted to see initiatives and projects happening across our beautiful peninsula that are paving the way for our transition to a low-carbon society – and how other parts of Ireland can follow in our footsteps.
The filming team talked to our General Manager, Deirde de Bhailís to see how the Hub is spearheading these initiatives before paying a visit to our friends in Spillane’s bar in the Maharees. They retrofitted their premises with help from ESB Networks Dingle Project and the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland.
They also spent time in the Maharees tombolo with Martha Farrell of the Maharees Conservation Association, to see their Nature-based Solutions, like planting marram grass and erecting chestnut fencing to protect the sand dunes that are such an important defence against storms and rising sea levels.
This Prime Time special on climate change goes out live on Thursday 14th April at 9:30pm on RTÉ One and will be available afterwards on the RTÉ Player.
