BONUS #GE2020 EP: Can Rural Ireland go Green? with Saoirse McHugh

It was presumed this election would be overshadowed by the Green Wave. This hasn’t been the case. And where it has, it has been supported by quite an urban demographic and green policies have really been seen as an issue by rural, farming dependent Ireland. We talk to pal of the pod Saoirse McHugh about the challenges rural Irish communities are faced with to try and engage with the Green Wave and provides some of the solutions for why going green can actually be of benefit to farmers and why the conversation around climate change in Ireland doesn’t have to be reduced to the size of the national herd.
