“L” - is for Local Dingle Peninsula Produce!
Members of the Dingle Food Destination group, today launched their “L” - is for Local Dingle Peninsula Produce campaign.
The campaign aims to highlight the vast amount of local produce that is on offer in restaurants, cafés, bars and accommodation providers throughout the Dingle Peninsula. Food establishments will be encouraged to put the “L” symbol after any item on their menu that is produced on the Dingle Peninsula.
To date there is over 21 producers based on the Peninsula,
 producing a whole range of products that include, crab meat, ice-cream, bread, cheeses, meat and dairy produce. Recent research carried out in local busnesses highlighted the large amount of local produce that is on offer in menus throughout the Peninsula.
Dingle Food Destination in conjunction with Fáilte Ireland will organise a Food Networking event later this year where the full findings of recent research will be revealed, together with a foods tourism strategy.

Look out for the L = Dingle Peninsula Produce / Bia Áitiúil on a menu near you!
What is Green-Schools?
There are now 3564 schools in Ireland registered with the Green-Schools Programme of An Taisce which represents over 83% of all schools in Ireland. Of these, 2306 schools are flying the Green Flag.  In the Dingle area there are 6 schools registered with the Programme with 2 schools having been recently awarded: Bunscoil an Chlochair received their 2nd  Green Flag for the Energy Theme and Scoil Iognaid Ris received their 4th Green Flag for the Travel Theme.
 The Irish Green-Schools programme is one of the most succesful within the international network. One of the main factors in the success of the Irish Green-Schools programme is the partnership between the Environmental Education Unit of An Taisce and Local Authorities i.e. the financial and time contribution of the Local Authorities to the programme. Most of the Local Authorities (City & County Coucils) have an Environmental Education Officer (EEO). These officers provide the invaluable on the ground support to schools undertaking the programme.
Green-Schools is a themed programme with schools initially focussing on the theme of Litter & Waste, and working through the seven steps for this theme and applying for the Green-Flag. Once successful, the school moves onto the Energy theme, and then onto the Water theme. This links very well with the renewal of the award every two years
