Adams supports ‘The People’s Forest’ Project

11 March, 2009 - by Pat Sheehan

Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams has commended today's launch of 'The People's Forest', the joint project between the Ulster Camogie Board, the Ulster Ladies Football and the Back to Eden Group.

The goal is to plant a thousand Ash Trees at Mill Dam and Wolfhill on the foothills of Belfast's Black Mountain and Cavehill.

Mr Adams said,

"This is an excellent and innovative programme that will be good for the environment and good for sport.

The Ash Tree has a long association with Irish culture and in particular with Hurling and Camogie.

With so few native trees being planted and given the scarcity of woodland in Ireland, this project is very worthwhile and deserves to be supported.

I would urge everyone to buy a tree." CRÍOCH
