Relive a day on the bog as we recreate the part the bog played in rural life & also heighten awareness of the importance of conserving as many as possible of our raised bogs for future generations.
Starting at St Kilian's Heritage Centre in Mullagh at 2pm, The Living Bog team will take visitors on a guided walk of the nearby Killyconny Bog, one of 12 raised bogs being restored by www.raisedbogs.ie. As well as experiencing the old ways, you will learn about bog restoration and also hear great stories from yesteryear from the St Kilian's Heritage Trust team. Tea/coffee/snacks served at St Kilian's centre.
