Saturday July 19th, 10.30 am – 1pm

Transition Town Castleblayney & Castleblayney Community Enterprise present ‘A Journey through Time - From the Distant Past to a  Future Full of Hope for Castleblayney’. Workshop led by Mary Kate Hagan & Liam Murtagh in Castleblayney Community Enterprise Centre 

Sit back and relax as you are taken on this fascinating journey up to the present and then put on your thinking cap as we look at  a future fifty years from now - with a lot less oil and new challenges.  A question we will look at is:  ‘What is a ‘transition town’ and what are the benefits for ’Blayney’s future by  becoming a transition town’?

All are welcome: Attendance is free of charge.  Details / Booking: Contact:  Enterprise Centre tel 042 9746087


Mary  Kate Hagan trained in the US and runs workshops throughout Ireland as well as managing an ecological project in Bundoran.  Liam Murtagh from Castleblayney is involved nationally in the transition town  movement and is interested in Castleblayney  becoming a ‘Transition Town’ in response to the challenges of peak oil and climate change.
