Botany experts to give guided walks in Boyle

Two members of the Botanical Society of the British Isles, both experts on the botany of Co. Roscommon, will give guided walks in Lough Key Forest Park in Boyle on Saturday next, May 19th, to mark National Biodiversity Week in the county.             John Earley and Michael Archer are the botanists who will lead the Boyle walks.
