Dry Stone Walling - Conservation Services

A traditional skill in Ireland dating back thousands of years and very evident in the west of Ireland. Drystone walling involves the construction of a wall, soley made on stone. No bonding agent is used to stick the stones together, the "bonding" comes from the skill used to lay the stones.

It's a very labour-intensive jobs but rewarding in the end.

Dune Conservation - Conservation Services

Without protection, the vegetation that holds the dune together is walked on and destroyed, leaving the dune vulnerable to winter storms and other forces of nature. This popularity means that many sand dunes are at risk of sustaining irreparable damage. Irish beaches are a popular place for recreation all year round. Dune Conservation - Conservation Services.


Hedgelaying - Conservation Services

Another traditional skill not practised as often in Ireland anymore due to the invention of hedge trimming machinery and post and wire fencing. The process of hedgelaying is less damaging to plants in your hedge and good for stockproofing gappy hedges. Group week end training can be arranged with Conservation Services for groups of up to 6 people.
