In this we are tracking some 120 buildings and structures at risk which were considered significant nationally and regionally and required intervention to prevent further deterioration. While there has been progress in securing certain buildings particularly in the Dublin City area, the majority of buildings recorded remain at risk and are becoming increasingly lost.

The future for Irish agriculture should be one of a thriving sector that is climate-resilient, with a focus on indigenous food security, while protecting biodiversity and minimising negative impacts such as air and water pollution. The assessment by the Climate Change Advisory Council (CCAC) of the agriculture and land sector, published this week, has been welcomed by An Taisce as a timely, if overdue, contribution to a critical national debate.
