TREES AROUND Áras an Uachtaráin, which were felled by storms, and subsequently gifted by Uachtarán na hÉireann, Michael D Higgins, to Letterfrack GMIT, are now the subject of a new book - See The Wood From The Trees.

See The Wood From The Trees, by Marion McGarry and Dermot O’Donovan - both staff members of the National Centre of Excellence for Furniture Design and Wood Technology, GMIT Letterfrack - and published by Connemara publishing company Artisan House, also details the history of trees in Ireland and the transformation of Letterfrack Industrial School into the GMIT campus.

The book includes a foreword by President Higgins, an introduction by architect and broadcaster, Duncan Stewart, and the inclusion of the poem, 'The Farmleigh Tree Alphabet' by Theo Dorgan. it is available in a hardback edition, a special limited edition, and a 'special de luxe' limited edition.
