Biodiversity Week in Annascaul
Annascaul Adventures celebrated Biodiversity week last weekend in Annascaul with a programme filled with activities for all. It started with a nature walk and talk with Albert Nolan (DJ “Wild about Limerick”) and Elizabeth Brookes. Dr David McCormick of The Irish Wildlife Trust came and gave a wonderful guided Bat walk & talk which was thoroughly enjoyed by all. He also gave a great insight to Marine life in Annascaul river along with Jim Scholar which children and adults took great delight and pleasure in examining the species in the river. Local man Mossy O’Connor gave a stunning account of wildflowers and general Ecology of the Annascaul Area. Darrach Ó Murchú cooked up a storm outdoors with his fabulous recipes from foraging in the Tom Crean Garden. Top author of Wildflowers of Ireland, Zoe Devlin gave a very informative and interesting slideshow and talk to a large crowd in the Community Centre which concluded with tea & cakes. Results of all competitions will be published soon.
Annascaul Adventures would like to thank everyone who was involved in this fantastic weekend especially Elizabeth Brookes who helped to organize this weekend.
Annascaul Adventures are holding their AGM on 17 June @ 2pm, Annascaul Sports Hall, All Welcome!
