Go for a wander in the woods this autumn and find some 'fun'-gi. The Blue Trail at Florence Court is a gentle walk through native Irish woodland so a great place to spot the weird and wonderful fungi which rear their heads everywhere. Spot local wildlife as the leaves crunch under your feet and the kids find puddles which ask to be jumped in.
