Bray People - - NEWS -

AN TAISCE has paid trib­ute to the ‘ex­tra­or­di­nary con­tri­bu­tion of Éa­mon de Buitléar’ in Ir­ish life.

‘An Taisce would like to ac­knowl­edge Éa­mon de Buitléar's ex­tra­or­di­nary con­tri­bu­tion to so many Ir­ish peo­ple’s un­der­stand­ing and ap­pre­ci­a­tion of our lo­cal na­tional en­vi­ron­ment, its habi­tats and species.

‘Many gen­er­a­tions were ad­dicted to 'Amuigh Faoin Spéir' (Out Un­der the Sky) with Dutch artist Ger­rit Van Gelderen.

This was a won­der­ful pro­gramme which was both en­joy­able and ed­u­ca­tional, in which he merged his love of the Ir­ish lan­guage and cul­ture with that of our nat­u­ral na­tional her­itage and his own in­trepid pho­tog­ra­phy.’

At­tracta Ui Bhroin, Coun­cil Mem­ber of An Taisce The Na­tional Trust for Ire­land, said ‘I never hear or see an oys­ter catcher with­out think­ing of Éa­mon de Buitléar or look­ing for an all too rare curlew.

‘ The coun­try re­mains in­debted for his con­tri­bu­tions, which also in­clude his books, other award win­ning se­ries and his role as a Se­na­tor. ‘Ar dheis lámh Dé go raibh a anam dílis’.
