Eel monitoring

Eels of The River Nore with Rob Cruikshank

16 August, 11am - 1pm

  • River Nore
  • Inistioge
  • Co. Kilkenny

Nore Vision volunteers take part in an annual eel monitoring project each Summer with Inland Fisheries Ireland. As part of this project, we host a workshop with Dr. Rob Cruikshank during National Heritage Week. Dr. Rob Cruikshank is an eel scientist and he will take us on a fascinating journey of an eel's life. Rob has enthralled audiences in the past few years with science and tales.

The European Eel (Anguilla anguilla) journeys from its breeding ground in the Sargasso Sea across to the Atlantic to our rivers and streams like the River Nore.

The event will take place in Inistioge (location to be confirmed closer to the date). It is fully accessible and all are welcome especially the young.
Log onto to our website and book this very enjoyable, free outdoor event with your friends or family. Kids must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Wear suitable clothing based on the local weather conditions of the day.

Weather and river conditions may effect this event.
