Strawberry Tree (Arbutus unedo) is considered by many to be native to Ireland but Dr Micheline Sheehy-Skeffington’s research suggests it may be a more recent arrival. Following the trail of the first copper miners who reached the shores of Ireland, along with Irish place-names, folklore and DNA, Micheline weaves a fascinating story about the possible origins of the Strawberry Tree in Ireland.
This is a joint event between the Ellen Hutchins Festival and Bantry Historical and Archeological Society.
