2020 County Report for Co. Longford

Ciaran Bruton

Although minor in the grand scheme of things, 2020 was a very frustrating year botanically. Restrictions unfortunately precluded any recording in H24. On the positive side, records, particularly from critical taxa were added to the Ddb, following a trawl of various journal back issues, The Irish Naturalists Journal in particular. A list of previously recorded, but not-recently-found taxa, as well as "desiderata" - taxa likely to be found if targeted was compiled. These will form the basis of recording when season 2021 kicks off.
