Howth Goat Grazers Among The Blazers At Landscape Awards
Fingal County Council took nine awards across five categories at the recent Irish Landscape Institute Awards 2022, with the main gong going to the Howth Head Goat Grazing Project.
In selecting the Howth Goat Grazing Project for the highly prestigious President’s Award, the judges noted it as a: “High-impact, interesting and valuable project, astutely posing professional evolution ongoing in our changing world.”
Fingal’s nine award winning projects were: Ardgillan Glasshouse Restoration (Commended), Shackleton Gardens (Best in Section), Skerries Town Park Playground (Best in Section), Bremore Regional Park (Highly commended), Lanesborough Park (Best in Section), Fingal Tree Strategy (Highly commended), Fingal Play Policy (Best in Section), and Howth Head Goat Grazing Project (Best in Section and President’s Award).
The Howth Head Grazing Project is a unique illustration of innovative thinking and nature-in-action and the handy footwork of the goats, as well as their diet on ferns and hedges lightens the fire risk over the hill on those hazy days of summer. Well done to all!!
