Fly by night in the Ring of Gullion

As part of National Moth Night, Darren Rice, The Ring of Gullion Officer, and Catherine Bertrand, Senior Regional Officer for Butterfly Conservation in Northern Ireland, will help you spot some of our biggest common garden moths including the bright pink Elephant Hawk moth, the shimmering purple/grey Poplar Hawk moth and the boldly patterned Garden Tiger – all of which can be found in the average garden!

The Ring of Gullion Officer said, “Summer moths are bold and beautiful and who knows what else we will see?”

Catherine will give a short presentation in the cinema room in Ti Chulainn Activity Centre in Mullaghbane before we all head outside to see what we can find. The event starts at 8.30pm and finishes around 10pm on 22nd June. The evening’s event is suitable for families and anyone with a general interest in wildlife.

For further information and to book, please visit or contact any tourist office in Newry and Mourne. Places are limited therefore pre-booking is essential. This is a free event supported by Newry and Mourne District Council, NIEA, and Butterfly Conservation NI.
