I've been looking for some upright native juniper cuttings for outer ringing of a birch shelter belt.
Coillte Nurseries have none.
Anyone know of a source ?

No these people only have common junipers grown from seed.
The source of their seed, they do not know - it may have been a low bush juniper or an upright.

I see on the internet that the north shore of Lough Derg has an area of preservation that has good examples of upright juniper scrubland.
Supposed to be some parts of west/southwest Kerry also with similar scrubs.

Funny how Ireland's oldest tree has not been maintained more.
Looks like the gin producers prefer cultivars as a source of berries . . . .

Found them.
Near Cornalack and especially along NE shore from Bellevue.
6' - 8' high typically.
Occasional one up to 16' when confined by adjacent growth.

Great wild yews at Cornalack also. Very Happy
