Birds of Ireland

Birdlife has a central part in Irish folklore. Birds are important players in our myths and legends, but they also feature in the day to day superstitions and beliefs of Irish people, especially, in the countryside. Whether the cheerful warbling of robins and wrens to the swooping majesty of the white tailed sea eagle, we’re reminded of the wealth of birdlife that we have on these shores, of their place in our story and of our responsibility to secure their future.
