Blue Damsel Discovery
Where we got the name?
Blue Damsel flies are the slower, smaller, versions of what people call dragonflies.
Their colours bring a touch of the exotic to summer time spent by Cavan lakes. They live in both the realms of water and air and are rich in symbolism. They are also fascinating to study and watch.
From childhood I have delighted in exploration of natural history and wildlife . Each little discovery has brought hours of pleasure. I would like to share that enjoyment with others
Health and natural wealth
I firmly believe that interaction with the natural world plays a great part in our health. We are creatures of mind, body and soul that require interaction with the natural world.
I also believe that if people, (especially children) , don’t discover the natural wealth and magic of what is around us they will not be motivated by the ideas of conservation to halt the losses in biodiversity.
I am currently on the Heritage in Schools programme list of experts that go to national schools
I am now a mother of two living and working on a suckler farm on the Cavan and Leitrim border, I observe the seasons change, and record the wildlife I discover .
I share the pleasure with the young in schools and those that are young at heart, visiting Cavan or Leitrim. I welcome enquiries about our area
