Join BurrenBeo Trust as they explore the Burren landscape in the twilight and get a new perspective on the area. Led by Shane Casey, the evening will include songs, stories, stargazing and an overview of nocturnal wildlife. Shane is a native to this area but is also the Biodiversity Officer for Dublin City Council. Shane and John Casey are both very familiar with Blackhead, Fanore and the local songs, stories and nature.
The meeting point will be Murroghtoohy layby, Blackhead (51 M 150 115) at 7.30pm. Suitable shoes and clothing for walking required, as well as waterproofs, or warm cloths etc as necessary. While trying to keep light to a minimum it may be worth bringing a small torch or head torch if you have one. Some of this walk is on broken pavement so a reasonable level of fitness is required. The walk is a free event.
