Tree Week & New Song
On Tuesday, March 8 in Dublin, Liam Ó'Maonlaí & Glen Hansard held a concert where the focus turned to Irish forests and the news that Bertie Ahern, an ex-prime minister of Ireland, is involved with the proposed sale of Irish forests to a foreign company.
Damien was there and got up for a song which has been posted on youtube by a member of the audience.
It being National Tree Week in Ireland, we thought we'd also give you the link to the petition by The Woodland League to save Ireland's forests from being sold off. If this is something you'd like to support, feel free to sign here.
