Woodville Farm

Woodville FarmAnother day, another farm. This time it was Woodville Farm in Sligo as part of ‘Wild Sligo’ run by The Sligo Heritage Office.

Neil FoulkesNeil Foulkes from the Hedgelaying association of Ireland gave us a talk about the importance of farmland hedgerows and how to maintain them.

A walk on the farmA good crowd of people turned up which was great considering the lousy weather. I have to admit I was so cold I didn’t stay around for the whole talk, I couldn’t hear much anyway with the wind blowing.

There were some lovely animals to see too and I would love to go back on another day but the farm is now just opened to pre-booked groups. I remember bringing my kids here when they were little.
