Where to from here? The Neart na Macairí project will hope to harness the incredible strength of the Maharees community to build resilience in the face of the climate impacts to come.

It isn’t every day that a small west Kerry-based community like Maharees gets awarded a significant national project like the Creative Ireland Ignite project (Neart Na Machairi). It’s testament to the trojan efforts the Maharees community has made to date to work with state agencies, the local authority, academics and NGOs to address climate change impacts felt by the community. This creative climate action project will build on this work and also that of the Dingle Hub who have been leading meaningful climate action on the Dingle Peninsula over the last decade.

The project aims to explore questions of long-range climate change adaptation, the challenges and opportunities; how the community can ready itself for the changes and impacts to come on Maharees and ultimately become resilient.  In partnership with Maharees Conservation Association, Dingle Hub and the community of Maharees, Neart na Macairí will bring ten community members on a learning journey to explore the challenges and opportunities in climate adaptation, alongside three creative practitioners, Emer Fallon, Silke Michels and Zoë Ui Fhaolain Green, and project designer Zoë Rush, whose roles are to facilitate a creative and collaborative exploration of the future of Maharees in relation to climate change and biodiversity loss.  

“This project takes as its starting point that coastal resilience requires an integrated approach, drawing from deep place-based knowledge of these habitats and the customs and traditions of people who live within them as well as expert guidance and collaboration with state agencies to support and incorporate community visions of change within strategic and financial planning.” Neart na Macairí Project Designer, Zoë Rush.

Maharees Conservation Association Chair, Aidan O’Connor said: We have seen what we can achieve as a community when we have the knowledge and support of our stakeholders – we want to take that a step further now. Everyone talks about Maharees being impacted by climate change and sea level rise more than other places but we know there are solutions out there and adaptations we can make to be as resilient as we can going forward.

Deirdre de Bhailis, Dingle Hub: Appreciating this delicate symbiosis and learning how to collaborate with ecological systems is key to the future sustainability of coastal communities. MCA have become an international exemplar of community-led climate adaptation through their multipronged approach to the protection of their dune system. However, this community still faces the same challenges as the rest of the country, with climate predictions for Ireland showing an increase in the strength and frequency of winter storms, higher precipitation levels, increased inland flooding risks, along with increases in sea levels. With 40% of Irish communities living in coastal areas, the question of how communities can adapt to be climate resilient is of key importance to our future . “


The first full-day event as part of Neart na Machairí, takes place this coming Saturday, 29th June. World Sand Dune Day.  World Sand Dune Day is an annual international celebration dedicated to raising awareness about the significance of sand dunes at a crucial time as coastal erosion threatens coastal communities worldwide.
