The Bealtaine Living Earth Festival celebrates nature, local heritage and sustainability in the South East of Ireland.
The festival took place virtually 15 – 23 May 2021. Now in its 17th year of existence, it is coordinated by Calmast, Waterford Institute of Technology’s STEM engagement centre. The festival brings groups from across the south east of Ireland together to celebrate biodiversity, our Living Earth, nature, health and wellbeing and is funded by Science Foundation Ireland, Waterford Council and industry partners West Pharma, Abbott, Sanofi, MSD and Bausch + Lomb.
This year, the festival continued to highlight local amenities and centres showcasing the rich natural heritage and the environment across the region in partnership with organisations such as The National Reptile Zoo and the All Ireland Pollinator Plan.
The gallery includes a selection of student art competition entries from St. Senan’s National School Kilmacow, Graiguenamanagh Boys National School and Urlingford National School.
