flora

The Dingle Peninsula has an interesting and varied flora, including some Lusitanian and Alpine species not generally found in Ireland. This was recognised by Oidhreacht Chorca Dhuibhne, who commissioned Máirín Uí Chonchubhair (with the assistance of Aodán Ó Conchúir, photographer) to carry out a survey of these plants, as well as to collect folk-cures and other béaloideas (folklore) associated with them. A selection of this survey was published as Flora Chorca Dhuibhne Aspects of the Flora of Corca Dhuibhne. This full colour, hard-back volume is available in the Múseum Chorca Dhubihne bookshop, now at the special price of €15.
