Biodiversity Action Plan

The Biodiversity Action Plan for Ballyhaunis examines the biodiversity in the town and its potential for improvement. Grant funding was obtained from The Community Foundation for an ecologist to conduct fieldwork and research in 2022. We are fortunate to have the Friary Grounds and the Dalgan River as highlights of our town's biodiversity. With this document we are able to implement important steps to protect and preserve our ecology.
