An Taisce celebrates anniversary

Environmental and heritage group An Taisce is 60 years old today.

The organisation has been safeguarding sites of national importance since 1948. Among its achievements over the past six decades is the setting up of the Green Schools Scheme and the Blue Flag scheme for beaches.

An Taisce volunteers also manage 16 national heritage properties including Kanturk Castle in Cork and Tailors Hall in Dublin.
