The Committee of Management of the IPCC are delighted to present the Annual Report and Financial Accounts of the Irish Peatland Conservation Council for 2019. The accounts were adopted at the AGM held on the 15th July 2020.
In this year we ran a wonderful butterfly project on Lullymore West Bog enhancing the habitat for butterflies and engaging widely with the community through attending a National Biodiversity Conference, co-ordinating open days at the site and publishing a Bonding with Butterflies leaflet. Targeted species management activities were undertaken on other reserves focusing on Curlew and Large Heath Butterfly IPCC were honoured to receive a National Heritage Award in recognition of our work in conserving and promoting bogs. We upgraded facilities at the Bog of Allen Nature Centre with a new engaging classroom and accessible paths.
Our success is due to the support of our donors, volunteers and staff. Thank you all so very much.
IPCC’s voluntary Committee of Management held 7 meetings in 2019 plus an AGM. Our work included regulating IPCC’s finances and operations, monitoring health and safety, facilitating an audit of our finances, appointing new directors, patrons and staff and ensuring compliance with the Governance Code. The Committee made the decision to purchase Ketts Lough, Co. Clare, which will be completed in 2020. IPCC reported on all of our activities to the Charities Regulator.
