: 03/15/2019 - 15:49

Thousands of students, including from towns in Kildare,  have marched on the Dail demanding the Government start taking climate change seriously.

Young activists handed TDs a list of six demands this week including a call for the Government to declare a 'climate emergency'.

Students across the country also took part in the global demonstration by protesting outside their local authorities and school gates.

Molly from Celbridge says there needs to be a crack down on environmentally unfriendly corporations.
