The Snipe Conservation Alliance enjoyed great support at launch day on Tuesday 30th January at the Shamrock Lodge Hotel in Athlone during the inaugural FĂ©ile na Naoscach (Festival of Snipe)

The enthusiasm was vibrant as Dr Andrew Hoodless, Head of Wetland Research at the Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust, presented on the current status and the challenges ahead for this enigmatic wader.

We would like to thank the many organisations that support this venture including the Irish Hawking Club, the International Association of Falconry and Conservation of Birds of Prey, Countryside Alliance Ireland, the Irish Red Grouse Conservation Trust and the Irish Kennel Club.
