Join Irish Wildlife Trust Laois Offlay Branch, BirdWatch Ireland and Kildare Bat Group for a walk through the People’s Park, Portlaoise. We will hear from Ricky Whelan about the Rookery just outside the park at the Downs, now known to be the largest roost in County Laois, and then walk through the park along the Triogue to hear about bats from Anna Collins of Kildare Bat Group.

A free, family friendly event. As we will be out after dark along the river bank, children must be accompanied by adults. Wear suitable clothing and footwear, it may be wet underfoot.

Please let us know of any accessibility needs and we will do our best to put these in place.
