The Irish Deer Commission held a highly successful rut walk in Killarney National Park, Co Kerry on Sunday October 14th hosted by National Parks and Wildlife Service. The event was a family friendly event, with 112 people registering to attend from all over the county. The walk also included a talk on the history of our native Red Deer by conservation ranger Peter O’Toole.
The weather was fantastic which added to the spectacular scenery and impressive Red deer seen. NPWS reported the walk as the “largest to be held in the Park”, and Minister for Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, Josepha Madigan TD, tweeted “what a glorious day for it!” commenting on the Association’s rut walk.
Thank you to everyone who attended
