Event Details

Come along on Thursday 14 November at 7pm and find out about the history of Lough Erne’s Trasna Island and the “Queen of Trasna” who lived there centuries ago.

Hear about RSPB NI’s Islands Restoration Project that will focus on conservation work to restore the natural heritage of this island by recreating open wet grassland conditions to support the recovery of species like curlews and lapwings, once common in Fermanagh but now facing the same plight as the now extinct corncrake.

This free talk will take place in the Exhibition Hall at the Waterways Ireland Building, 2 Sligo Road, Enniskillen starting at 7pm with an anticipated finish time of 8:30pm. Tea and coffee will be provided. No booking required.

This project is being delivered in partnership with the Lough Erne Landscape Partnership which is funded and supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund with a special thank you to the lottery players who make this funding possible.

Event contact: Amy Burns, Lower Lough Erne Islands Reserve estate manager
