Castleisland Culture and Heritage Society will be hosting a 'bushcraft' river walk led by Sean Fagan, on this Saturday, February 23 at 1pm.

"We will be meeting at the Old Library Building, Upper Main Street, Castleisland. Sean Fagan will guide us along the river walk and inform us on everything from plant use to our native river wildlife. Sean Fagan is an enthusiast in Bushcraft and Survival, Navigation, Camp-Craft and Coastal Foraging," said society co-founder, Maggie Prendiville.

"So, if you have you ever wondered what thistle root tastes like or how to make rope from nettle stalks, why not come along and join us on Saturday," said Ms. Prendiville.
