some great news! I spoke to Dr Clare o Leary last night and she has agreed to come to kinsale in late march/early April to
be pictured next to our fairtrade sign,exact time to follow shortly!

Dr Clare O Leary,a keen fairtrade supporter, was the first Irish woman to climb Everest! the first Irish woman to reach the south pole!
I couldn't think of a better role model especially for young children to show her appreciation and support for fairtrade!
This is a great news for our committee,who recently won the best fairtrade town in Ireland award!
