Lambay Island is home to Ireland's wild wallabies

Still Waters

Posted (IP: Staff) ·

For a few days in August wallabies hit the headlines in Northern Ireland after what was dubbed the "great escape' in County Tyrone.

Winnie the wallaby escaped her enclosure at Glenpark Estate near Omagh by jumping over a fence.

In the few days she was missing, there was much discussion about how well an animal native to Australia could survive in the wild in Northern Ireland.

However, Ireland has had a population of wild breeding wallabies for several decades.

Their story includes a large private island and an international banking family.

  • The title was changed to Lambay Island is home to Ireland's wild wallabies

Sorry to immediately go off topic, but I feel obliged to point out that in the second photo in the article there is the most amazing sighting of Nessie on her holidays!

Sorry wallabies, but Nessie is a 'one-off'.
