This species of Irish snail population is considered globally important as it represents up to 50% of the global population. This Glutinous Snail has been recorded at Scally’s Bridge on the Royal Canal, immediately north of Abbeyshrule village, with further records in the Royal Canal short distances up and downstream of the village.

The most important habitats in the village for fauna species are by far the River Inny and the Royal Canal. The hedgerows in the surrounding agricultural lands are also of value for song birds. Sadly as many have been severely cut back their value is somewhat reduced.

As the village has a small urban footprint, it benefits from the agricultural lands, including its many hedgerows. Biodiversity features exist immediately adjacent and alongside the village and in some cases are even part of the village itself.

A distinct aspect of our flora and fauna is the rich ecology found in the acres of virgin boglands that lie to the perimeter of our village. Nearby Newcastle Woods is a mecca for woodlands species and animal life.
