People in Longford who have an interest in finding out more about their local streams and rivers are being invited to take part in a new course to be delivered mainly online in the coming weeks.

The free courses will focus on North and South county Longford and participants will hear how the various streams, rivers, canals, and lakes connect tighter in the county.

The course is aimed at everyone from Tidy Towns members, farmers, anglers, walkers, and anyone with an interest in water protection, conservation and management.
