Green Flag

Green-Schools is Ireland’s leading environmental management and education programme for schools.

Promoting long-term, whole-school action for the environment Green-Schools is a student-led programme with involvement from the wider community. The programme is operated and coordinated by the Environmental Education Unit of An Taisce.


Our children are taught to respect nature, waste, energy, water consumption and their carbon footprint.

We have four Green Flags in Scoil Mhuire and our co-ordinator Múinteoir Tomás Clarke has applied for our fifth flag which focuses on Biodiversity.

We will increase awareness of the importance of native plants, animals and habitats, and to increase species-richness in our locality this year.
