Chairperson of Transition Monaghan, Micheal Callaghan says that he would encourage people to come along in order to get a lot of useful tips that will help save themselves money. The more we save the more it helps our local economy as we have more money that we can spend locally rather that it going out of the country on imported fuels.

Barry McCarron, one of the organisers of the Transition Monaghan event and who works with the Crest Project on a cross-border sustainable energy initiative says that there are now many new ways we can take steps to be more efficient in the home and use less energy and water and also have less waste going to landfill. Simple and practical steps can be taken, almost little cost, with relatively little effort, which can reduce your impact on the planet and your bills, saving you money! Members of Transition Monaghan and energy experts will be on hand during the day to answer your questions and point you in the direction of more information and tools to help you reduce bills.
