M. Reynolds

Mary Reynolds

Wildlife Rehabilitation Ireland is delighted to have the well known nature activist and landscape designer Mary Reynolds as Patron promoting the value of our work, in particular, our vision to build Ireland’s first Wildlife Rehabilitation & Teaching Hospital.
Mary was asked to create a concept and design for Brigit's Garden and she came up with an inspired design, itself a weaving of old wisdom with a contemporary consciousness. Read more about Mary Reynolds on the patron page of our website.

Sharon Shannon

Wildlife Rehabilitation Ireland is also delighted to have the widely respected and talented Irish musician Sharon Shannon as WRI's Patron. Sharon is best known for her work with the accordion and for her fiddle technique. She also plays the tin whistle and melodeon. Sharon became known for broadening the horizons of traditional music in the 1980s and '90s. Thoroughly versed in Irish music, she has not been afraid to mix her playing on accordion and fiddle with all manner of different styles.
