Cregduff Catchment

The Cregduff site is situated to the east of Ballinrobe in Co. Mayo and was chosen to represent free draining shallow soils over karstified limestone which are typical of much of the area which contributes water to the western lakes (Corrib, Mask and Carra). There is little surface drainage in this type of landscape which is dominated by groundwater pathways. The Cregduff spring has been selected as the monitoring point and it has a contributing hinterland of moderate to intensively farmed farmland which is almost all grassland. Most of the farms in the areas produce beef cattle and sheep but there are a number of dairy farms and a little tillage.
