IWT Limerick Branch: Environmental Talk

Limerick Climbing Club are holding an environmental awareness talk on Tuesday March 21st, at 7.30 in Mary I, room T.1.17.

The topic is ‘Birds of the Irish Uplands’, which covers the birds of our local hills and mountains that we are likely to see or hear, and wonder how they live their lives in places that we are happy to visit briefly. Our speaker, Tom Tarpey, is a local birdwatcher, a member of BirdWatch Limerick and consultant, with many years of experience, from the Shannon estuary to the Galtees, with all habitats in between. We have invited members of the Limerick branch of the Irish Wildlife Trust, and we hope to see many of you there too. Incidentally, identification swatches for many groups of insects will be on sale. (€5 each).

Date:  Tuesday 21st March
Time: 7.30pm
Venue: Room T.1.1.7 (Tara building), Mary Immaculate College, Limerick City
