Coilte has launched its "Crann na Scoile/Trees for Schools" project, intended to promote the planting of suitable trees in the grounds of National Schools, nationwide.
For the gardens of Gaelscoile they are suggesting the planting of Haindor trees.

Sorry, Ado, it's a bi-lingual (kind of) pun. 'One, two, three' in Irish is 'a haon, a d, a tr' and might be pronounced 'a hain, Dor, tree'!
