Cunnigar Co. Waterford 10
th June 2023general
The Cunnigar is a long sandy spit that stretches out into Dungarvan Bay from the Ring Peninsula. This is a botanically diverse area with a number of different habitats present including saltmarsh and sand dune. Plants we hope to see include Glaucium flavum (Yellow Horned-poppy), Bolboschoenus maritimus (Sea Club-rush), Prunus cerasus (Dwarf Cherry), Anacamptis pyramidalis (Pyramidal Orchid), Dactylorhiza fuchsii (Common Spotted-orchid) and possibly Glassworts (Salicornia spp.).
This is expected to be an easy walk with little to no inclines and we envisage the trip to be suitable for botanists of all levels. Please bring clothing and footwear suitable for all weather conditions, sun protection, a packed lunch and hand lens.
Meeting point will be at the Cunnigar car park at 11:00 am.
