The Living Bog (LIFE14/NAT/IE/000032) is due to end on December 31st, 2020. We had planned on hosting out end-of-LIFE conference in the autumn of 2020 in the Irish midlands.

However, due to the impact of Covid-19 and the uncertainty surrounding gatherings such as conferences we are currently looking at further options for our conference, including the possibility of hosting it online.

Obviously this makes essential items like sites visits relatively difficult, but it is hoped to find a way of presenting some of our restoration work, and the astonishing recovery of some sites, together with results from the Project Team. Stay tuned to the news section of this site, and also to our social media channels.
