Annex I habitats that are a primary reason for selection of this site

  • Largalinny represents bryophyte-rich old sessile oak woods in Northern Ireland. The site contains mixed deciduous woodland in which western oakwood predominates, but there are also flushes and calcicolous woodland, and there is a transition to open heath. A number of rare species, such as serrated wintergreen Orthilia secunda and the oceanic Tunbridge filmy-fern Hymenophyllum tunbrigense, are found here, as well as a rich bryophyte and lichen flora.
