Highest green flag in Ireland set to be raised
Published 16/05/2013 | 12:30
MEELIN National School will this week receive their first green flag for work done on reducing litter and waste.
It is the accumulation of a lot of hard work and we are delighted to be awarded this first green flag.
A ceremony to mark the raising of what we believe is the highest green flag in Ireland will take place before the summer holidays.
