Hare: (Giorria) The Irish hare is one of Ireland’s longest established indigenous species which was colonized in Ireland during the ice age. Their fur is brown/ginger in the summer and changes to grey in winter. Hares have an upright stance, often seen sitting a field on their hind legs.
Irish hares can be found in coastal grasslands, marshes they have mostly located in lowland pastures where there is grass, herbs, and heather. The Irish Hare played a huge part in Irish mythology and for many years and was depicted on the old threepenny piece.
