Twin Calves arrive at Connemara National Park

Irish Moiled Twin Calves

Connemara National Park is delighted to announce the birth of twin Irish Moiled calves on Sunday the 8th of August 2021. The healthy bull “male“ and heifer “female“ were born to Sire Macmann Bullagh Bos and Dam Toriamaur Holly . There is a less than 2% chance of twin calves being born! These additions will help build up the herd here in the National Park, which is an integral part of our conversation grazing program.

The calves are on display in the paddock behind the Visitor Centre, along the Sruffaunboy Trail.

We need your help!

Connemara National Park is looking for your help in naming these little beauties. The name should begin with Connemara, the prefix for all our Irish Moiled calves passports e.g. “Connemara …. “

The names chosen will win a €50 lunch voucher for the Park’s Tea Room, ” The Hungry Hiker“.
