Two Drums Mountain View.'
This Breathing Place was officially opened
on June 5th as part of the Springwatch
Dirty Weekend celebrations.
Local resident Joe McCarney explained how the ancient bog
had been opened up again to people with the construction
of the walkway and how:
"These bog areas are real treasures of our landscape.
They provide a unique habitat for a diverse range of flora
and fauna, so it's important that they are preserved and
looked after. It's equally important that local people can
actually enjoy them too."
To celebrate the success of this Breathing Place which
Drumduff and Drumnakilly Community Association have helped
open, there will be two community days with lots of activities
A Family Fun Day on June 5th
will start the celebrations, with demonstrations from experts
on planting and conservation, Ulster Wildlife Trust guided
tours and themed face painting plus lots more!
The second, on July 1st, will be more
hands-on, when people will have the chance to get their
hands dirty helping clear scrub, plant shrubs and even build
