The 2024 All-Ireland Pollinator Plan Council Conference took place at the Civic Theatre, Tallaght, on Thursday 13th June in collaboration with South Dublin County Council. 

Over 100 council staff attended from different local authority departments, including Biodiversity Officers, groundskeepers, parks staff, gardeners and engineers. 

In response to common work strands and challenges faced by local authorities, the focus of the 2024 conference was on meadow management and pesticide alternatives.
