Carrowmore, Doonbeg

Co. Clare 17th August 2024
recording general
led by
Donncha Ó Catháin, Phoebe O’Brien, Hannah Mulcahy

This meeting will explore the southern part of Carrowmore coastal dune complex. Habitats we will record in will include strandline vegetation, mobile & fixed dunes, and dune slacks. There hasn't been any recent recording in this site, and a couple of monads at the south end of the dunes have no records at all, so it should be interesting to see what's there. There are old records of locally rare species including Anacamptis pyramidalis (Pyramidal Orchid), Ophioglossum vulgatum (Adder's-tongue) and interestingly Viola lutea (Mountain Pansy).

Meet at 11:00am at public car park at south end of Doughmore Beach (Q984670)

Booking is essential as numbers will be limited.
