Once a site of local industry, the Commons North Woodland is now a beautiful example of a local biodiversity site. The former lime quarry in now an accessible wildlife walking area, with bats inhabiting the old quarry sites.
On this walk, we will explore the biodiversity of the woodland, which is home to badgers, bats, birds and rare butterflies. This site contains woodland, limestone pavement and quarry ponds. Our Irish Wildlife Trust guide will help you explore the plants and animals present in all these habitat. The use of butterfly nets and pond dipping equipment will help us see the resident butterflies, bumblebees and pond life up close. This is great fun for kids and adults alike, and an excellent way to celebrate 25 year of action for Ireland biodiversity.
