Talk – Every Song: My mission to record all of Ireland’s birds

October 5, 2023 @ 6.30pm - 7.30pm

Seán Ronayne: Every Song: My journey to record all of Ireland’s birds

Ornithologist Seán Ronayne is on a personal mission to record the vocalisation of every bird species in Ireland. For three years, he has travelled across bogs, mountains, remote islands and native woodlands documenting nearly 200 birds, including species on the cusp of extinction. Now, in a multimedia presentation, Seán shares his story and his unique, and often surprising, recordings of mimicry, distinct dialects, and birds never recorded in Ireland before. His journey reveals the beauty and importance of sound, and what listening can tell us about the state of our natural world.

This event will be filmed as part of a television documentary and will be broadcast on RTÉ in the coming months.



FREE. Booking essential.

THURSDAY, 5 OCTOBER 2023 from 18:30 to 20:30

Doors open at 18:30 // Event starts at 19:00 sharp.

Seán’s presentation will finish at 20:00 and will be followed by a Q&A.
