We are delighted to be joined by our special guest Eanna Ń Lamhna, botanist, entomologist, and radio & television personality who will give a talk on Wildlife in the Uplands. Eanna is well known for her vast knowledge which she shares in an entertaining and humorous way! The night will conclude with the awarding of certificates to those who have achieved various goals in 2011 such as completing the Irish County High Points.
