Friends of Myross Wood
In 2022 a new ‘Friends of Myross Wood’ group formed to help look after this much-loved part of West Cork. The ‘Friends’ objective is to support the creation of a living, community woodland resource for biodiversity, education, recreation and the arts. In August 2021, the project received a huge boost in the form of a grant of €28,000 through the Woodland Development Fund from the Department for Agriculture, Food and the Marine.
The ’Friends’ goal is to create a ‘Meitheal’ type project that will enable local people and organisations at all levels, from schools to businesses and community groups to support, fundraise and most importantly get involved in the work of developing the wood.
Myross Wood House and it’s grounds is the home for the Centre of Excellence for Climate Action and Sustainability (CECAS). Located in West Cork at the village of Leap on the Wild Atlantic Way, CECAS will develop hubs of activity over the coming years. These will develop in stages and will grow in scope and ambition. See below for an introduction to each of these areas of interest.
