Limestone lakes and turloughs, moorland and machair - Mayo’s dramatic landscape offers unspoiled natural habitats that are now among the most precious in western Europe. Its bogs, unpolluted rivers and lakes are home to rare plants and animals, its offshore islands shelter breeding seabirds and migrant Arctic geese.
Wild Mayo by Michael Viney takes the reader on a journey of discovery through the county’s landscape. It describes the rich wildlife and flora of a remarkable range of habitats, from mountain summit to pristine Atlantic shore.
