The Peace Forest Ireland Project involves the creation of a peace forest stretching all along the border counties north and south Ireland. It involves bringing communities together to better understand the cultural diversity and biodiversity of the various communities.

 

 

Today work on the tree planting is progressing with the welcome participation of the localcommunity. Our photographs show Rev.
