In November 2013, 23 pupils and 2 teachers from Athea National School in County Limerick, got the chance to visit the newly constructed Athea Wind Farm and were lucky enough to be able to see inside the turbines, as well as learning about how they work.
During the course of the construction of this project, the Athea National School was visited on a number of occasions to discuss site safety with the students. A presentation was also made to the pupils entitled ‘The Birds, Mammals & Insects of West County Limerick‘ by the Project Ecology team.
The school found the visit to be very informative and the students had a very enjoyable day out. On foot of this visit, a letter of appreciation was forwarded to the site team by the school to thanks them for their time and input. A copy of this letter can be found by clicking here.
