About Me

My photo

Hi :)
To Tell you what's going on in Murlough, we will show you some pictures - sometimes they explain more than the words ;)

The old boardwalk, while the constructions and the repaired boardwalk.
The boardwalk before, while and after the constructions.

While Daria and Fergus were doing site patrol with Pete on monday, Tom and I repaired two sections of the wooden boardwalks to the beach.
The Picture on the right shows the path at the beginning, the middle and the end of the work. We removed the mouldered wooden planks and substituted them with new ones.

Fergus and Tom transport soil for pathbuilding

On Thuesday, We were at the Mourne Mountains. We adjusted the walking path by moving stones and transport some soil to create a more comfortable natural looking trail


Till Christmas, we will do a horticulture course together with the volunteers from Castel Ward. On our first meeting, we did some theory, while the second meeting was filled with more practical exercises.

With a model example of an organized packed trailer for brush cutting and burning....

The area when we a arrived, while working and after work.

... the last days of the week we went to the dunes to continue our work "against" the gorse.
