Inspired by the achievements of their neighbours from the Glenmalure PURE Mile Group, the residents of Ballinabarney/Ballintombay put together their own group to enhance and document a mile of their own.
Their PURE Mile starts in the townland of Ballintombay, continues into Ballinabarney and ends at the bottom of the hill, just past the boundary into Kirikee.
The group compiled an impressive report on the fauna living amongst their chosen PURE mile. This report can be viewed below.

Also in the PDF at the bottom of the page is an extensive record of the natural heritage along the mile.
Winner of both the Best Community and Best Natural Heritage Awards.
