Enviro Fest in the West, the second annual festival of environmental events organised by Mayo E-Live continues at various venues throughout the locality. Over the weekend there was considerable interest in the talks and presentations and the line up of activities attracted good attendances at the various events.
During the coming week there are quite a variety of events that should appeal to a wide audience and will hopefully give us all a better appreciation of our heritage and greatest asset, namely our environment. Everybody is welcome to attend any of these events.
