Lorcan McBride

Director

I have been making the outdoors both my work and passion for over 10 years now- and every activity brings new people, new places, and new discoveries. What keeps me smiling is discovering the depth of Ireland’s natural heritage- and how people take to it so positively. I have been working with community leaders in Aotearoa/New Zealand for years to understand our own indigenous identity.

Born in the city, Darren spent 12 years working in Scotland leading water and land based expeditions. Living in Inishowen since 2018, he is happiest when rock-climbing and kayaking around our beautiful coast-line

Liam Campbell

Environmental Anthropologist

Hello! I’m a native of Inishowen and a Heritage Officer at Lough Neagh- our biggest inland freshwater lake. I’ve published and lectured widely on heritage and environmental issues in Ireland and internationally. My Ph.D. is in environmental anthropology and I love getting to see this in action outdoors.
