Earth hour takes place today

You’re being encouraged to take part in “Earth Hour” today to show your support in tackling climate change.

It’s a global initiative where hundreds of millions of people in over 150 countries will show their support by turning off lights for one hour today.

In Ireland, the lights will be switched off at various Government buildings and heritage sites, including; Leinster House, the Custom House, the Rock of Cashel, Trim Castle, Ross Castle and Ennis Friary.
