Some lovely winter photos taken by Carmel Shaw
Lovely to walk through the Town Park and the Wetlands in the crisp frost morning 🙂
Looks like a lot of scrub in the open spaces has been cut. Best watched on VR with definition set to 4K. Or in YouTube where you can drag the screen to change your point of view.
Pretty muddy on some of the paths but the ponds and grasslands are getting much wetter as well which is welcome.
Wonderful work being done by Shannon Men’s Shed in painting, installing and securing the new benches. Thanks fellas.
Attached is a photo of a beautiful piece of blown glass that was received in the post to commemorate us being shortlisted for the National Heritage Awards in the Water Heritage Award category.
Here’s the video we made to promote ourselves:

Hi, We will be displaying this poster around Shannon Town to promote this Sunday’s heritage week event.
We have made a promotional film for Heritage Week. Which is now included on the Heritage Week website:
The film had to be made that day and submitted to the Heritage website. So it was great what we managed to achieve in such a short timescale. Well done to Olive and John !
The committee of the Shannon Town Community Wetland have had their first post Covid open air meeting at the wetlands on Thursday last. A draft Biodiversity and Management report commissioned by Clare County Council regarding the wetlands was the focus of discussion. The report gives us a good baseline indication of the current biodiversity and is crucial to planning for the future management of the wetlands. Of note are two rare plants which were identified during the survey. These are Bristly Oxtongue and the Celery Leaved Buttercup. Also decided was to plan for two Heritage Week projects this year. These are a family fun day on Water Heritage Day on Sunday 23rd August when children will become nature detectives and a short video about the wetland restoration project. To ensure that government recommendations about outdoor events can be adhered to it will be necessary to register for the event. We will shortly post information about registration.
