My name is Cathal Flood. I am a postgraduate researcher at Maynooth University. I am also a member of a local citizen science project in Emyvale, County Monaghan in Ireland led by Enda Fields of DkIT and Leo McMahon, a local angler whose father was bailiff of Emy Lough for many years. I have found local knowledge so informative and inspiring as I did my thesis.
What do we do?
We take part in monthly testing of various water quality parameters in the Emyvale catchment and compare this testing to some taking place at Maynooth University.
