  1. I attended the conference – I thought the presentation by Tomás Murray was the highlight. Ní neart go cur le chéile – NIHBS should forge links and contacts with other conservation groups to make a wider impact. There’s a danger that NIHBS voice would be lost in a crowd; however I believe it would be worth the risk – I’d have no problem switching to an online version of the Four Seasons….
