Our farm is managed for wildlife and these Red Squirrels photographed in 2014 thrive in our woods. Game cover crops such as John’s Delight and wildflower meadows like the ones below attract hundreds of rare and endangered species as well as game birds.
Shooting and Conservation
Rathcormac Parish Gun Club is a private syndicate shoot. We manage our own little estate for shooting and conservation. We are all members of the NARGC’s Rathcormac Game and Wildlife Club which is the only official regulatory body for gun clubs in Ireland. Our club was initially founded in 1971 as Rathcormac Parish Gun Club.
We are actively involved in the creation of the Rathcormac Wildlife Reserve, and undertake many conservation projects in our local area.
Reintroducing the Grey Partridge
We are at present trying to reintroduce the Grey Partridge by releasing some every year. This once common bird along with the Corncrake could be seen and heard in almost every parish in Ireland, and we’re keen to see it thriving here in Rathcormac once again.
All members of the Rathcormac Parish Gun Club are insured with the National Association of Regional Gun Clubs.
