It’s Hedgerow Week! This week aims to emphasise and promote the importance of protecting the quality of our native Irish hedgerows in order to support habitats for all species who rely on them.
During the week, Teagasc will hold events for machinery contractors and farmers, as well as engaging with other stakeholders with an interest in hedgerows, in order to highlight best practice in hedgerow maintenance which provides the ideal environment for birds and pollinators.
To celebrate, Agri Aware and Teagasc have teamed up to offer one lucky winner a chance to win an family pass to Dublin Zoo! To enter, simply download and complete the names of the species pictured above that live in our native Irish hedgerows, post it back to the address listed and be in with a chance to win! There are also a number of events hosted by Teagasc taking place this week, visit www.teagasc.ie/hedgrowweek19 and be sure to keep an eye out on our social media channels for more information on Ireland's Hedgerows! #HedgerowWeek19
