Peregrine Falcons at Poolbeg

13th July 2015
Press Release

An Taisce is very taken by this a short film documentary by Alan Caulfield featuring a pair of breeding peregrine falcons living on the Poolbeg chimneys.

It's a good example of a crossover between natural and built heritage - you can see the doc here, it's 8minutes long https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vCuFK29EFa4&feature=youtu.be

He has also set up a Facebook page for it, where you'll find a fairly substantial article giving some background. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Quill-To-Power/1611460305759531?fref=nf

The latest is that the birds had two chicks this season which flew the nest in the last fortnight and are still in the Poolbeg area, but also that the chimneys are to be preserved by the ESB.
