Derryounce Walks and Lakes are a valuable asset for the town & hinterland of Portarlington.

A gofundme page has been set up to help purchase some badly needed equipment for the volunteers who look after Derryounce. The upkeep of Derryounce is carried out by a dedicated team of volunteers who often use their own equipment.

It is used by a wide variety of people, including walkers, anglers, naturalists, photographers and people who want to experience its peace and tranquillity. Your donation would be much appreciated.
