Irish Mountain Hare

Ballycroy National Park Badge

Spring is a time of birth and renewal; a time when nature is awakening from it’s winter slumber. We begin to see some of the creatures that have rested or remained hidden over the cold winter days. One such animal that is more visible at this time of the year is the Irish Mountain Hare. Our National Park Guide Doireann has put together an information sheet and quiz on this uniquely Irish mammal. Click here to download the information sheet. An arts and craft activity will be shortly uploaded to our Facebook page.
