Welcome to South Dublin Branch

The South Dublin Branch of BirdWatch Ireland, the national NGO wild bird conservation group, has over 1000 members in the south city and south County Dublin catchment area.

The branch organises meetings, slide shows, local and coach field trips between September and June and sometimes in July. Our members are active in many local and national conservation projects. Non-members are more than welcome to all of our events.

When the original Dublin branch of the Irish Wildbird Conservancy split in three, the South Dublin branch was formed in 1984 as 'Dublin Southside' with Maurice Bryan appointed chairman. Our first indoor meeting was a film show at the Hotel Victor on Rocherstown Avenue on Tuesday, 6th November 1984 followed by an outing to the North Bull Island on Saturday, 10th November. By the end of 1985 the branch had changed its name to the present one and our outdoor events were moved to take place on Sundays.
