On Friday 24 May 2019 Dr. Lorna Gold launched the school's Wellbeing Garden space for students and staff use.

She did unveiled a limestone sculpture by Jethro Sheen and the TY Young Environmentalists featuring the Cliffs of Moher, the Dolmen, Bureen fauna and flora.

After the official opening of the school's Wellbeing garden students took part in Climate Action March to the Pavilion Theatre where Mary Immaculate's Young Environmentalist students made a presentation of their Young Environmentalist Projects “Communicating Climate Change” and "Creating a Wellbeing Garden in our School", Guest speakers at the event were Dr. Lorna Gold of Trócaire and Seamus Walsh, Head of Climate Observations for Met Éireann. In attendance also from Met Éireann was Evelyn Cusack. A most informative morning.

In the afternoon students Fionn Shannon and Rachel Carter, together with Deputy Principal Mona Hynes and teacher Maggie Garrihy, had an opportunity to meet the King and Queen of Sweden who were visiting Lisdoonvarna and tell them a little bit about the possible effect of an increase in sea levels will have on the coastal villages of Clare by 2090.
