It was an interesting presentation. We can be proud that here in Killorglin we have three very special habitats: the river, the wet woodlands and the reed beds. We all know and love the river Laune, but do we ever take the time out to appreciate it and walk by the banks? If you do, you will come across the wet woodlands, a magical place, especially in springtime, where the trees (willow-alder-ash) can grow even when their root systems get flooded out. You can see the wet woodland along the banks near the Mill Car Park and also on the Tralee side of the Metal Bridge, near the wind turbine. Finally we have the large sedge and reed swamp along the Laune to the east of the town dominated by Common Reed and a habitat that is suitable for Reed Bunting, Sedge Warbler and Moorhen amongst other bird species.
By the way, a copy of the plan can be found in the library in Killorglin.
