One more thing:
Eoghan Connaughton (Project Lead) is a master’s student at Trinity College Dublin researching ‘Rewilding Post-Productive Landscapes‘. This enterprise is guided by an inter-county and international community of skill-sharing volunteers. We’re also working with Green Belt Ltd (registered foresters).
