Acknowledgements, References & Contacts
Information for Lahinch Ecolinks was forthcoming from a number of people and a variety of sources including the groundstaﬀ and Council of Lahinch Golf Club. I would most particularly like to thank Austin Slattery for commissioning the booklet and whose idea it was from its inception.
