Weekend field meeting at Courtmacsherry

In addition, the BSBI are holding a field meeting over the same weekend in the Courtmacsherry area.
If you are interested in Ireland’s wild plants, come along to learn more. This will be a great opportunity to learn from some of Irelands best botanists.


Leaders: Fionnuala O’Neill and Edwina Cole

The main aim of this two-day event will be to generate records for Atlas 2020. Possible habitats investigated over the two days will include deciduous woodland, coastal beaches, coastal headland / heath and a graveyard.

Walking boots/wellingtons, raingear, sunblock and a packed lunch required. Meet both days in Courtmacsherry at 11.00am in the carpark past the hotel, adjacent to the beach at the eastern end of the village (W517427).
