Killaun Bog

Killaun Bog

Amanda Pedlow
Saint Brendan's Community School, Birr


Killaun Bog is just outside Birr on the Kinnitty Road. Thirty years ago, St Brendan's Community School acquired a corner of the bog and a walkway was installed. For three decades this has provided access for numerous visitors, students and researchers. In 2020 we identified that this needed to be replaced and the Heritage Council Community funding has assisted in this and we are delighted to have a new stretch of boardwalk completed.

John Feehan has been involved with Killaun from the outset and we are delighted to share this video on the evolution and journey of the raised bog featuring John for National Heritage Week.
