Woodland Flora
Killinthomas Wood, just north of Rathangan, is owned and managed by Coillte in cooperation with the local community. It is an old woodland area that was replanted in the post-war years with a Beech, Oak and Ash. It is being managed primarily for biodiversity and recreation. Killinthomas is noted for its display of Hyacinthoides and Allium species in the spring.
