A Wild and Wonderful Heritage Week with Burrenbeo Trust!
Burrenbeo Trust had a great Heritage Week 2018. Burren Wild Child event in Carron on 22nd August saw an enthusiastic bunch of young investigators scavenging for clues to help them understand the story of this wonderful place. The Burren Conservation Volunteers had a glorious BCV Volunteering Open Day on 25th August. Huge thanks to the BCV committee for sharing their experience and leading volunteer groups! Thanks to the Burren College of Art for hosting us and to the Heritage Council for supporting our work. If you would like to join the BCVs, please click here.
