Éanna Ní Lamhna, the well-known botanist, writer and radio personality and past-President of An Taisce, is perhaps best known for her work on RTÉ's 'Mooney goes Wild'. Louth woman Éanna is widely recognised as an entertaining and informative speaker and has a special talent of bringing her subject to life, sharing her knowledge of wildlife and the environment in a fun and informative way. According to Éanna, these are places that she would bring any visitor to Louth to see because they reflect her own interests and knowledge of the county. Monasterboice is currently being considered for addition to Ireland's Tentative List of World Heritage Sites. The Conservation Study for the site is available to download on our 'Publications' page.
