County Carlow Environmental Network have pledged to help festivals in Carlow to "green up" but they need the help of volunteers to make it happen.

During the St Patrick's Day weekend, there will be three bins close to the Town Hall where all the action is taking place in Haymarket.

The Network said: "We want to encourage people to divide their rubbish into general waste, dry recyclables and food. We would like a couple of people to look out for each bin station to help them do this.

"The more volunteers we get, the less time we'll have to spend at the bins!

"This year the festival will be taking place over two days, so we're looking to cover the three bins between 1-4pm on Saturday, March 16 and 1-6pm on Sunday, March 17.

"Training will be given as well as high vis vests, gloves etc. Can you help? If so, please private message us with your email address or questions and we'll add you to the list and be in touch with more details."
