After a hugely successful project last year, this year Tony Keneally is working with Transition Year Student in Millstreet Community School again this year. This years project is about the study of Barn Owl and Kestrel in the area of Millstreet. As part of this project the Transition Year Class constructed 2 Nest boxes for each species. The first 2 boxes will be erected in undisclosed locations to maximise the probability of these two very solitary birds, nesting in the boxes so an in-depth study can carried out regarding the birds. The second 2 boxes, we require the publics assistance. If you have seen a Barn Owl or Kestrel in your area could you please contact us as we would really like to erect these Nesting Boxes in an area where these birds have been seen. Contact us via email @ firstname.lastname@example.org Facebook or twitter. Alternatively here on the website. We look forward to the project that will be submitted by the Transition Year Students and as last year the project chosen by Tony Keneally will be submitted with our National entry this year.

Millstreet Tidy Town Association are very proud to announce that tonight we were presented with the winning Bio Diversity Project from the Transition Year Students of Millstreet Community School. It was a very hard decision to come to as all six projects presented to Tony Keneally were of the highest standard and we would like to thank all the students that took part in this project. This Bio Diversity study was undertaken by Aisling Dennehy, Ava Barry, Áine McAuliffe, Jennifer Corcoran, Chloé Collins & Megan Ring. The Bio Diversity Project is of the Woodland area next to the Millstreet Community School. They were mentored by Wildlife Biologist, Tony Keneally and supported by Mr Derry Morley and teachers Ms Fitzgerald and Ms McAuliffe of the Millstreet Community School. This will be a fantastic addition to this years submission to the Tidy Town application, every point that we can gain is an achievement. We hope that with the continued support of the Millstreet Community School and the wider community as a whole that this project will continue in the future. Well done girls
