Wetlands Heritage will be holding their next meeting in Cooney’s Hotel Ballymahon on next Thursday, March 26th at 8.30pm. New members are invited to attend as this organisation is now creating an awareness of its existence with the acquisition of a portion of bogland from Bord na Mona and the opening of a new walk way over Ring Dong bog from the Royal Canal to the Interpretative Centre.
