CPC helps with Phoenix Park fawns tagging

A video clip on yesterday's Irish Times website features CPC science teacher Eleanor Higgins and some 5th Year pupils helping the OPW and UCD students in the annual tagging of fawns in Dublin's Phoenix Park, writes Brian Byrne.

According to the clip and the detail in the accompanying article, about a hundred fawns are expected to be born each year in the Park. They are caught using large nets, and then measured and tagged before being released again.

"We're very proud of them all," says Catherine Moynihan, principal of CPC.
