Michael Moynihan TD has welcomed the official Launch by An Tánaiste Mary Coughlan TD, Minister for Education and Skills, on Friday last, 10th October, of the Green Flag earned by IRD Duhallow’s After School Programme.
“This is a great achievement by participants, staff and management of the After School Programme, as this is the first after school programme to be awarded the Green Flag in the entire country, and I congratulate everyone involved,” said Deputy Michael Moynihan.

“It was important that An Tánaiste Mary Coughlan TD demonstrated not alone her support of the efforts of IRD Duhallow’s After School Programme in securing this recognition of their dedication to the environment, but also her very real appreciation for the essential role played by After School Programmes in the education and development of the rising generation.”

Deputy Moynihan continued, “I look forward to continuing to work closely with Minister Mary Coughlan TD and her Department in coming months to see that all possible resources are provided for the schools and educational facilities throughout North Cork.”
