The Dangers of Wildfires

Wildfires are unplanned or uncontrolled fires in the countryside or open areas in towns and cities. They often spread quickly through plants that are dry and easy to burn such as gorse and heather.

A series of videos were made by the Year 6 school children in St Malachy’s Primary School, Camlough and St Mary’s Primary School, Mullaghbawn through the Ring of Gullion AONB project. They aim to raise the awareness of the dangers of wildfires and reduce the amount of fires.
