The Burren’s world famous wildflowers will be the centre of attention once again later this month when the Burrenbeo Trust’s Burren in Bloom festival returns.
Running from April 30th to May 18th in venues around the Burren, Burren in Bloom will feature a wide variety of events including walks, talks and cultural events, with a choice for all age groups.
‘Every year the amazing Burren floral bloom arrives to delight locals and visitors to the region. The Burren in Bloom festival gives people a greater appreciation for and knowledge around this natural phenomenon. This year’s festival promises to be the best yet, with events for all the family’, says Brigid Barry, Burren in Bloom coordinator.
“With events during the month on topics ranging from dawn chorus to coastal blooms and wolves to grasses there is plenty to attract the outdoor enthusiasts. There is also a day long walk over the winterages and a family art event. This year there is a photo competition to find the promotional images for the event, entries to firstname.lastname@example.org by the 10th April,” she added.
The Burren in Bloom Festival is coordinated by the Burrenbeo Trust with support from Failte Ireland. To download the festival brochure visit http://www.burreninbloom.com and for more information contact email@example.com or 091 638096.
