Irish Wild Flowers

Wild Irish Flowers

The Wild Orchid can be found in the Cavan Hedgerows at the moment. They don’t grow in large numbers but  with their bright pink colour they are very pretty and easy to spot among the bluebells and primroses. 

Wild Flowers in Cavan’s Hedgerows Spring 2011

Wild Flowers in Cavan’s Hedgerows

Our very cold winter has not effected the wild flowers in the hedgerows this Spring, in fact they seem to be doing better than ever. Primroses, Violets, Bluebells, Buttercups, Rocket and a white flower(don’t know the name) are flowering away in great displays.

Killykeen Forest Park, County Cavan

Took a walk through Killykeen Forest Park, outside Cavan Town last Sunday such a beautiful spot. Lots of bird life, wild flowers such as primroses and  bluebells. We spotted hundreds of tadpoles in one of  little streams along the walk. Walks are well mapped out on signs and are of varying lengths and grades, there is something to suit everyone.

Bluebells in County Cavan

There is one wild flower you cannot miss in County Cavan at the moment , and that is the Bluebell, in places it is just like a blue carpet flowing through woodlands and hedgerows alike. The Bluebell combined with the Primrose makes a lovely contrast.
