The image of Ireland in most people’s minds—whether you’ve been there or not—is likely to be a landscape of lush green rolling hills and farmland. But when it comes to sustainability and biodiversity, how “green” is Ireland really?
Our guest this week is author and environmental campaigner Pádraic Fogarty. Pádraic is the author of the book Whittled Away: Ireland’s Vanishing Nature and the spokesperson for the Irish Wildlife Trust. We speak with Pádraic about what the divisive “turf wars” are all about, protection for farmers, fishing, and how we can make the most impact as concerned citizens.
Join us as we peek behind the curtain and attempt to separate appearance from reality around sustainability in Ireland.
