Up, Up and Away at the Cliffs of Moher

Biodegradable Balloon launch at the Cliffs of Moher, Ireland

School children took part in a launch of biodegradable balloons at the Cliffs of Moher yesterday in an effort to encourage voting in the New7Wonders of Nature. The Cliffs are one of 28 finalists in the international competition that will be determined by public vote.

Each balloon was printed with the ‘Vote for the Cliffs’ logo and a contact message to encourage people who find the balloons to contact the Cliffs. A prize will be awarded to the person who finds the balloon that has traveled the farthest distance.

Votes for your favorite seven sites can be cast at www.new7wonders.com/n7w.

Now, I just hope one of those balloons flies over my way.

  1. Hi,

    It would be really good if the Cliffs of Moher made it into the New7Wonders of Nature. I’ve just voted.
    Also, just wanted to say that I noticed you have been nominated for an Irish Web Award. Congratulations with this and I hope it goes well for you. We have also been nominated for 2 categories. Fingers crossed.
    Good luck,

    Regards,
