Building Pride & Identity in Castlegregory & Maharees - Anchored in our Special Place

This project, led by the Maharees Conservation Association, aims to make the local community and visitors aware of this Natura 2000 site and its status as an Area of Special Conservation (with 50%+ of Ireland's natterjack toad population & rare flora like the bee orchid & petalwort).

To do this, visual art pieces will be installed in areas of high footfall which will build pride in the area's rich heritage and a creative land art and movement performance will be developed and recorded, which will celebrate the beauty of the area's salt marsh habitat and create an enduring record of this vulnerable habitat for future generations, as it is likely this area will be effected by rising sea levels brought about by climate change.

Due to Covid-19 public health restrictions, those who wish to attend the performance on 14th August, must reserve tickets by emailing Progress recordings of the visual art installation and the recording of the performance will be available on the Maharees Conservation Association's Facebook page.

Please note that the details of events listed above are provided by the relevant Local Authorities.
