Our conservation plan on this site at Derrymore Springs Killucan Co. Westmeath was dedicated to creating and protecting the natural landscape wetlands, enhancing wild life habitats and the natural resource found on this unique 32 acre landscape.
We designed and engineered the restoration of this depleted quarry sand and gravel-pit into a high quality work of natural art which is now a 20 acre man made lake. The lake with its crystal clear waters boasts of 4 islands and a 20,000 tree plantation which surrounds the outer perimeter. The lake now serves as a public recreational lake and wetland community park.
