The Fingal Branch is run by a small committee of dedicated volunteers who are passionate about the conservation of wild birds and their habitat in the Fingal area. The Branch formed in 1985 when Rogerstown estuary came under treat of the development of a large landfill site.  


Branch Activities:




Countryside Bird Survey

Garden Bird Survey

Lapwing Breeding Survey - Rogerstown

We host a series of indoor and outdoor events throughout the year. See our Events page for more details. These events are open to the public and free of charge with an option to make a small donation at the end. 

We regularly support joint events with organisations such Fingal County Council, local schools, tidy town groups and other societies, giving talks or walks.  


We maintain two hides at Rogerstown estuary. See our Rogerstown Hides page for more details.


We rely on the support of the public to finance our activities, such as the maintenance of the hides at Rogerstown and running  the Little Tern and Lapwing projects. Our main fundraiser is the annual General Knowledge Pub Quiz in January every year so your support is much welcomed.
