National Tree Week – 7th-13th March
NATIONAL TREE WEEK
7TH – 13TH MARCH 2016
Dun Laoghaire Cathaoirleach Barry Saul (Class of 1995) visited the College last Friday morning, 11th March 2016 to plant a tree in the College grounds as part of National Tree Week.
In his address, he spoke fondly of his time at Blackrock and in particular, recalled the early years of Mr Campbell’s Greenwatch Magazine which encouraged an interest in and a concern for the well-being of our Planet. He was also shown one of our 3 campus biodiversity areas.

Conor Bailey (5th Year)
Josh Warren, Hugo Murray (both Transition Year)
Michael McDonald, Conor O’Neill, Rhys Rowland (all 3rd Year)
