Eco Eye: On the waterfront

Anja Murray visits the Inishowen Peninsula in Donegal to speak with Trish Murphy about the work of Inishowen Rivers Trust. In Monaghan, Magheracloone Group Water Scheme are putting in hedgerow buffer strips along waterways to capture nutrients and silt washing off the land.
