On Sunday the 5th of May, in the run up to National Biodiversity Week, the Clare Local Association hosted a fantastic walk on the Gorleka property in the Burren.

Graced with fantastic weather, the group followed a newly opened path around the site, taking in the unique geological features, as well as rare and endemic plant species which inhabit the limestone pavement. Assisted by the immensely knowledgeable Harry Jeuken, an organic farmer and conservationist, and Clare LA secretary Anny Wise, An Taisce's Natural Environment Officer, Fintan Kelly gave a fascinating talk on the development of this site.

Many thanks to all who attended.
