that area and expect volunteers to clean it up. Those
who use the bottle

Robot for Clonegal
picturesque village of Clonegal, Co. Carlow has a new resident
- one who has a very distinct look. Its arms are conveyor
rollers from a quarry; its feet are the bucket teeth from
a digger. It has bolts for fingers and an engine for a
stomach. Its eyebrows are wire brushes, its hair comprises
motorbike chains and its cheery smile is thanks to the
roller from a conveyor belt.
This smiling metal man, who carries a suitcase, is completely made from recycled
scrap parts and was created by Liam Birmingham, a second-year mechanical engineering
student from Institute of Technology Carlow. And on Wednesday 13th June Liam,
alongside his engineering lecturers Dr. Anthony Nolan and Dr. Cathal Nolan, presented
the smiling ‘Tin Man’ to the Clonegal Tidy Towns committee. He will
reside in the square opposite the church in Clonegal village where his suitcase
will store used batteries as part of Clonegal’s ongoing efforts to “reduce,
reuse and recycle”.

of the robot), Dr. Anthony Nolan Carlow IT,
