Biology.ie was founded in August 2005 as an interactive tool for the collection of Nature's Calendar or phenology observations. It grew from a simple flash based map (which is still with us) to using Google maps to collect data from the public.
Blackrock Education Centre (BEC) - one of 21 such full-time Centres throughout the country - provides support for teachers and others involved in education in Dun Laoghaire/Rathdown County, part of South County Dublin and North County Wicklow.
Carrick on Shannon Education Centre is located in Marymount. St. Brigid's or the Red Brick Building as it was familiarly known was built in 1940/1941 and was used as a Novitiate for the Marist Sisters. The aim of this website is to keep teachers and the wider education community informed of upcoming events and courses available to them.
