Learn all about Ireland fascinating wild bees

Join the Irish Wildlife Trust for a free Heritage Week event hosted at the National Botanic Gardens. The event is all about Ireland’s wild bees and will combine an informative talk with a bee identification walk around the Gardens. No prior knowledge of bees is needed.

The event will begin at the Visitors Centre with a talk on the bees of Ireland and how we can help protect them. We will then take a walk around the National Botanic Gardens where we will demonstrate how to find and identify bees with a focus on bumblebees.

Creative heritage inspired by nature and its music

Hosted by: Irish Wildlife Trust Monaghan Branch & Local Authority Waters Programme

Join the Irish Wildlife Trust Monaghan Branch & Local Authority Waters Programme for an event to explore some of the many ways the sound of nature has influenced Irish creative culture. Attendees will follow the journey of an Irish sound recordist Dean McDonnell, who is documenting Ireland’s different habitats & rich array of wildlife across the north-east through the medium of sound recording. Writer and medieval Irish scholar, Fearghal Duffy, will share his learnings on the ecology of early Irish literature, examining the influence of sounds from nature on Irish medieval poetry, whilst local musicians Tara & Rossa Gilsenan will play a few tunes inspired by the Irish countryside. Particular focus will be given to our immense wealth of wetland habitats, so synonymous with the inter-drumlin landscape of counties Cavan & Monaghan and coastal environment of County Louth.
