For those who shoot game in Ireland, the sporting opportunities are many and varied. There are the challenges of snipe in the marshes and wet pasturelands; woodcock in the forests and scrubland; grouse in the heather uplands and pheasants and wood pigeon in all the counties. Vast flocks of golden plover descend on the country as autumn progresses. Mallard, wigeon, teal, shoveller and many other species of duck abound on Ireland's Loughs, bogs and marshlands. With so many game birds about it is hardly surprising that game shooting is a popular sport throughout the country. Irish rough shooting has its own unique qualities and there is usually a delightful informality to it, which is so different to the approach elsewhere in Europe. This is a book to be treasured by all game shooters.
