They don’t hang around in the Kilmacangue History Society we can reveal. No sooner has a very successful 2014 series finished when the Spring series is planned.
First up on January 13 is ‘Wicklow Birds – part of our natural heritage’ and it will be presented by Eric Dempsey.
In this visually stunning presentation, Eric will focus on birds which can be found in County Wicklow, both native and migratory. He will describe their different habitats, their breeding seasons and migrating movements, and their struggle to survive our harsh winters. He will also tell us of some breeds which have become either less or more common in Wicklow over the past number of years, and offer some reasons for these changing patterns.
Eric Dempsey is a full-time writer, broadcaster, speaker and wildlife photographer, and a long-time member of the RTE Mooney Goes Wild team. He is the author of several books on Irish birdlife, including ‘The Complete Field Guide to Ireland’s Birds’, and some of these books will be available for purchase on the night.
This meeting promises to be an uplifting start to a further season of great presentations to the society and all are welcome to come along and join them. It’s on in the Glenview Hotel in the Glen of the Downs at 8.30 p.m. on Tuesday, January 13. Entry is just €3 (€2 for members) and if you want more details of the societies activities, please visit their Website @ kilmacanoguehistorysociety.com
