PRESS CUTTING

"An encyclopedia of Burren-related knowledge. A fascinating explanation of the landscape."

Eoin Butler, Irish Independent.

TESTIMONIAL

"The wonder of the Burren was brought to life for me spending a day with Tony. Mid-winter was a perfect time to visit and have most sites to ourselves.  
Tony's passion about the ecology of the region and his vast knowledge around the history, archaeology and lore made my time with Tony a real high point of my trip to Ireland"

Barbara Addleman, San Francisco Bay Area, California U.S.A. January 2017.
