It’s on Sunday 16th July at 11am .
Come along with Niall Mac Coitir of IWT Dublin Branch, to see some of the amazing variety of wildflowers on Bull Island at this time of year, including several species of orchid! The display rivals anything that can be seen in the Burren.
Meet at the Interpretative Centre, next to the Causeway at 11am.
The event will last about two hours. Wear sensible shoes and, this being Ireland, sunscreen AND rain gear.
Please be advised the terrain we’ll be covering is slightly rough so would not be suitable for buggies – and wear ‘sensible’ shoes!
See you there!

A Nature walk on West Limerick Greenway, including Barnagh Tunnel. The leader is Paul Murphy, a local botanist. There are around 100 species of wild plants in the area, with a particular abundance of liverworts, mosses, and ferns.
This tunnel is one of the more evocative features of the now closed Limerick-Tralee Railway. It was opened in 1880 and is 115m long. It is situated at nearly 170m above sea level and was excavated with explosives and pickaxes. The rock cuttings on either side of the tunnel have reverted to nature and are an impressive sight.
Bring raingear and take care of children as it is an active cycleway.
Numbers are limited to 25 and places must be booked at email@example.com.
Date: 12th August
Location: West Limerick Greenway, including Barnagh Tunnel, Co. Limerick
