DONEGAL County Council
executive architectural technician Siobhan
McCafferty has scooped first prize in the local
authority's staff energy saving idea competition.
Siobhan received her new iPad for her 'Switch Off
Tuesday' idea. Her idea will see council staff
"becoming more aware of how simple energy saving
actions can result in greater energy savings for the
organisation and reduce our overall carbon
footprint". The competition was held as part of the
council's Energy Awareness campaign launched last
summer as part of its commitment to ISO 50001
accreditation obtained in November 2016.

Campaign is critical to our success."
