Enter the mycologist's (that's someone who studies fungi) paradise, the International Mushroom Festival, held in Killegar Ireland. The festival was started in 2010, when the Northern Ireland Fungus Group and the Irish Mycologists’ Society contacted Lady Sue Kilbracken to ask to visit Killegar and forage for mushrooms. Much mushroom gathering ensued, to the extent that species which weren't known to be native of Ireland were discovered. The event was such a success that it was proposed to make it a yearly occurrence.
