The new online story map forms part of the County Monaghan Heritage Series publication “Monaghan’s Wonderful Wetland” being launched today. The County Monaghan Wetland Tour is an initiative of the Heritage Office, Monaghan County Council. 

The wetland locations shown in this interactive online tour are sites in Co. Monaghan open to public that have various facilities including parking, paths, fishing stands (may require license), information signs, longer walking routes or a visitor centre. 

The story map brings you on an informative tour of 23 wetlands around Monaghan where you can learn more about these fascinating habitats. These sites have a variety of visitor facilities including parking, paths, boardwalks, exhibitions and information signs, that will help you enjoy a visit to these magical places, and learn more about wetlands and their value to people and wildlife. The map is based on a selection of wetlands shown on the Map of Irish Wetlands. 

The story map includes map location information, a brief summary of what you can discover at the sites, a summary of facilities at each location, and a link to further information, opening times and more.
