Glenstal Abbey partners with 100 Million Trees Project for Irish biodiversity


The Benedictine monks in Glenstal Abbey invited the Mulcahys and their team of volunteers on the eve of the Epiphany to plant 2,500 saplings on a quarter of an acre site at their County Limerick monastery.

Welcoming the initiative, Abbot Brendan Coffey explained, “At Glenstal Abbey, we believe in the sacred responsibility of stewardship for the Earth. The 100 Million Trees Project aligns perfectly with our values, and we are honored to contribute to this noble cause by providing both our land and the hands to plant these trees. This initiative not only enriches our local environment but contributes to the greater ecological and indeed spiritual well-being of our nation.
