Tallaght Community Council (TCC) planted an evergreen oak tree to mark ESB National Tree Week, which ran from March 6th until March 13th. This is the third year they have done so and this one was planted beside the Poddle Walk on the ITT campus in Tallaght village.
Paul Campbell, the ITT Estates Manager accepted the tree, which was planted by TCC reps and the current Tallaght Person of the Year 2015, Philip Preston.
ESB Tree Week is organised by the Tree Council of Ireland and has run since 1985. It is a week-long programme of events to celebrate trees. The event is sponsored by the ESB in association with Coillte.
