Alas Allihies Weekends are no more. When they began at the turn of the century these kinds of gatherings were relatively rare - by now there are so many think tanks and weekend retreats being run around the country that groups and individuals no longer needed ours, and especially one so far away at the edge of western Ireland.
However because we work remotly and very much seek to bring in new people who are excited by this work, we are holding our agm this year on a Saturday the 10th of April - the weekend after Easter - in the midlands. If you want to come and meet us all send us an email.
We'll be heading out onto the bogs a year after we began our campaign to bring under control the vast unauthorised peat extractions in the midlands. Has our work has the slightest impact?
