Cowberry a new native plant for County Wexford

 It was a great surprise to find Cowberry on a rocky knoll on Black Rock Mountain, as it is a new native species for the county. The Cowberry was spread out over an area 3 x 10 m. It was a monad I hadn't walked in before, with the only habitat being heather moorland, and a few flushes.

Cowberry grows on the small knoll in the foreground. Mount Leinster the highest point in the distance

The Cowberry had finished flowering. The above photo shows Cowberry with fruits
