Abbeyleix is on a path to becoming an energy efficient community, guided by the Sustainable Energy Communities programme and the Abbeyleix Climate Action Project.
The Abbeyleix Energy Masterplan will be launched by Duncan Stewart this Thursday, December 17, at 7.30pm. The launch will be streamed live on the Laois Heritage Forum Facebook Page.
