Oakstone EC

Making a difference

I moved to the beautiful and peaceful North West of Ireland with my border collie Mac in 2020, spending most of my time until recently restoring an old, semi-derelict cottage.  I also restore old furniture as a hobby, you just can't beat the old craftsman made furniture, which also helps to slow down the need to use new resources.

Doing a full time MSc as a mature student was a challenge, though extremely rewarding and enjoyable, but getting the cold, hard facts about climate change in graphic detail was jaw-dropping and more than a trifle unsettling.  There is without a doubt a need for us all to act a lot more responsibly and think harder about how we live

Ireland is a relatively 'safe' place in terms of climate impacts (yet!), there is a low population density and it rains a bit!

However, we are running out of water due to the effects of global warming, a growing population and over use.  By acting responsibly now we are creating a more secure legacy for our children and their children.
