OPW Minister makes EarthHour commitment

In the Dail (Irish Parliament) the Minister responsible for the Office of Public Works (OPW for short) has just agreed to participate in the Earth Hour 2008 campaign. The OPW provides accommodation for Government services and manages and maintains the State's property portfolio not just in Dublin but, throughout the country. We can expect iconic landmarks such as the Custom House on the Quays and Government Buildings to switch off on March 29th.

Support for the campaign is steadily growing now as both Limerick City and Galway City councils are supporting this initiative. A big thanks to Kieran Walsh in Limerick for his efforts
