The Minister for Agriculture is visiting Clare this evening to honour one of Europe’s most innovative agriculture schemes.

Burren LIFE was selected as the European Commision’s “Best-Ever” LIFE project in the 25 years of the programme, which aims to implement and develop the EU’s environmental and climate policy.

Minister Michael Creed will attend the event to celebrate the achievement and launch the Burren Programme for 2017 at the Kilfenora Hall from 7pm this evening.


Michael Davoren of Burren IFA says the project is being replicated across Europe.
