This field meeting will explore areas of coastal habitat in the Glassilaun/Lettergesh areas of north Connemara. The main habitats occurring are sand dune, coastal heath and acid grassland which combine to produce a species-rich flora. Among the more unusual plant species which have been recorded from the area in the past include Erica erigena (Irish Heath), Anacamptis morio (Green-winged Orchid) and Botrychium lunaria (Moonwort)
