Abbey Street Car Park Wildlife Sign: Ennis Tidy Towns would like to let the community of Ennis know about the new wildlife sign in Abbey Street Car Park.  Unfortunately the previous sign had to be replaced and the Tidy Towns, in conjunction with the new Biodiversity Plan Steering Group, developed the new sign you see today.  The sign highlights the wealth of visible and hidden wildlife along the River Fergus as it flows through our town, all set to the fantastic backdrop of a specially commissioned aerial shot of Ennis taken by local photographer Paschal Brooks.  So if you ever wondered about the prehistoric jaw-less lamprey that lives within the silty bed of the River, the majestic kingfisher darting to snap up fish from overhanging branches or the spectacular water crowfoot the blossoms throughout the summer, make your way down to Abbey Street car park.  The sign was a key deliverable of this year’s Tidy Towns submission and we hope that you (and the judges!) enjoy it.  If there are other areas around Ennis that you feel could benefit from a wildlife sign please let us know by contacting info@ennistidytowns.com.
