Friends of the Earth Ireland

Friends of the Earth Ireland are launched in Dublin Castle. Their naked politicians parade around the front gate of Leinster House, but sadly failed to pursue Dick Roche TD, our new Minister for the Environment who wandered past.

Great speeches by Mark Deary (FOE Ireland), John Woods (FOE Northern Ireland) and Tony Juniper (FOE UK).

They appear to be filling the void left by the demise of Earthwatch which was a great campaigning voice for the environment based in Cork for many years
