The Park also include a series of rich, bio diverse eco-systems such as a wetland area, wild flower meadows and native woodland habitats.
The Mulcahy Family
In 2016, the Mulcahy family gave a very generous donation of €200,000 to help with the construction of the park in commemoration of their relative Min Ryan. Min Ryan served in the G.P.O. and Jacob's factory during the 1916 Rising.
This project was part funded by the Government of Ireland through the Outdoor Recreation Infrastructure Scheme (ORIS).
