Albert Nolan’s Wild about Limerick

I Love Limerick’s resident nature writer Albert Nolan has a new wildlife show on Limerick City Community Radio called Wild about Limerick. The show is produced by Mary Honan who has her own show ‘Wild Geese’ each Saturday.

Albert is delighted to be given this opportunity, and looks forward to sharing his passion for all things wild with the community. Limerick city has an amazing wildlife from the banks of the Shannon to the bumblebees that forage in the People’s Park. There are also brilliant projects going on in the city that are helping to raise awareness about the nature in our city and the different ways that we can protect it.

Albert has had an interest in nature since he was a child and especially the creatures that share our city streets, gardens and parks. He engages with different groups from Tidy Towns to schools, and writes for the Limerick Leader on wildlife. Nearly everyone has some interest in wildlife from fishing to butterflies, and this makes it a great and safe way to get to know people from different communities.
