Four recent graduates from Geography’s MSc Programme in Marine and Coastal Environments had their work presented as expert evidence to the Oireachtas Joint Committee on Housing, Planning & Local Government on the ‘Prohibition of Micro-Plastics Bill 2016’.  Dr Audrey Morley and Dr Kevin Lynch supervised the graduate projects over the last three years. The Oireachtas Committee was very appreciative for the presentation, which highlighted the presence of micro-plastics in shellfish, nephrops and marine sediments on Ireland’s west coast. In conjunction with work frim GMIT it forms an important body of work in an Irish and European context.  See part of the recording here.
