Dún na Sí Amenity & Heritage Park carried out a
number of workshops with Ecologist George Smith.
The aim was to educate students from our local schools
on the importance of our turlough. Turloughs are
unique to Ireland and are homes to lots of different
plants and insects which the students were able to
study whilst they explored the turlough.
These workshops were supported by the community
water development fund.
The schools who took part in these workshops were:
St Oliver Plunkett – 6th Class
St. Brigid’s – 6th Class
An Grianan – 5th Class
Castledaly NS – 5th & 6th Class
Tubber NS – 6th Class
MSC – Transition Years
A huge thank you to all the schools who took part and
especially to George Smith who delivered such an
informative and hands-on workshop!
