Brigit’s Garden, Rosscahill, Co. Galway, has been awarded funding of €60,000 from Science Foundation Ireland and the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland for the installation of renewable energy devices at the award-winning Celtic Gardens and Visitor Centre . The solar, wind and other technologies will have interactive elements to enable visitors of all ages to learn about natural sources of energy in an engaging and interesting way.
The project is a partnership between Brigit’s Garden and the Ryan Institute in NUI, Galway, the Engineering Department in NUI, Galway and Tipperary Energy Agency. Our role is to carry out feasibility studies and help with the installation of renewable energy systems to produce as much of St Brigit’s Garden’s energy demand using ‘Nature’s Power’. There will also be an open competition for artists to design a kinetic sculpture driven by solar panels. The Nature’s Power Trail at Brigit’s Garden is due to be opened in Autumn 2014.
