Come and listen to an enlightening lesson on the The Joyce country Western lakes Geopark project- includes Loughs Carra and Mask.
Geoparks help to tell the fascinating stories of geological, social, cultural and economic history of specific areas. They also help to promote and secure broad-based, sustainable social and economic development in their specific territories. There are now over 120 geoparks worldwide. Elevated to UNESCO status from 2015, they have equal status to World Heritage sites but do not carry any legislative weight and don’t impose restrictions on people, landowners or industry.
