As part of Climate Action week 13th – 19th May 2024, Sustainable Enniscorthy and the Climate Action Team of Wexford County Council will host an Energy Clinic for homeowners and community groups to provide expert advice on energy savings, retrofit upgrades and accessing various SEAI grants.

TFI Local Link Wexford are proud to collaborate with Wexford CoCo Climate Action in raising awareness on actions and measures we can all take at a personal and local level.

We aim to continue rolling out additional routes as part of the National Transport Authority’s Connecting Ireland Initiative to better connect and bring our communities together in a sustainable way.

TFI Local Link Wexford are delighted to provide an information stand at the Energy Clinic event in the Riverside Hotel Enniscorthy on Tuesday May 14th.
