3.00pm – Saturday 7th October – FREE EVENT
A talk by Pádraic Fogarty, author of “Whittled Away: Ireland’s Vanishing Nature” published by Collins Press
Pádraig has seen at first hand how failure to manage our natural resources has impoverished our country. But all is not lost: he also reveals the possibilities for the future, describing how we can fill our seas with fish, farm in tune with nature, and create forests that benefit both people and wildlife. He calls for the return of long-lost species like wild boar, cranes and wolves, showing how nature and wildlife can recover hand in hand. A provocative call to arms, Pádraig presents an alternative path that could lead us all to a brighter future. There will be an opportunity to meet Pádraic after the talk.
Venue: Indoor Picnic Room, Connemara National Park
