#LambayIsland - Conor Lenihan has been revealed as a founding member of a new exclusive club "for the bold and inquisitive" based on Lambay Island, as the Sunday Independent reports.

The Lambay Club, started by members of the family that has owned the island off North Co Dublin for over a century, says it's aimed at protecting Lambay – known for its population of wild wallabies – "with a carefully shaped community of like-minded individuals" who will gather to "imagine, discuss and create".

It's understood that former junior minister Lenihan's role will be to help "shape the club and select the first founder members ... with a strong focus on diversity of age, gender and expertise."

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open. is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
