A group of campaigners urging action on climate change will hold a peaceful protest in the square in Maynooth tomorrow, Friday, February 8 at 1pm.

Spokesperson for the group, Mary Jennings, a member of Maynooth Tidy Town Association, said the group will be joined by Trocaire climate change campaigner, Dr Lorna Gold.

Ms Gold has been protesting at Dail Eireann over what the protesters say is inaction on climate change on the part of the Irish government.

Tomorrow, she will be in Maynooth instead of at Dail Eireann.

Ms Gold is the author of Climate Generation - Awakening to Our Children’s Future, which was published last year.
