Bunmore Bog Restoration Derryfadda, Co. Tipperary

What happens when nature returns to an industrially exploited bog?

Join the IWT and Bord na Mona on a visit to Baunmore Bog in Co. Tipperary to hear about restoration efforts there. It will be led by Bord na Mona ecologist Dr Mark McCory who will talk about their work in bringing life back to these former industrial sites.

This is a 2-3 hour looped walk across the cutaway bog staying on the high peat fields. Wellies are advised as there will be at least one point where the path will be wet and boggy.

This is a great opportunity to see rewilding in action and a glimpse of the potential which awaits were we to return all of the industrial cutaway bogs to nature.

Date & Time: 10:00 am start – 13:00 pm finish, Sunday 12th May
