Carrowbehy / Caher Local and Community

This page belongs to the communities surrounding Carrowbehy/Caher Bog. Whether you are a local community group, heritage group, men’s shed, drama group, play group, school, or a sporting organisation, this section of the Carrowbehy/Caher site is for you.

Stories and history from the area is currently being compiled by local man Seamus Crawley and Gorthaganny National School.

This is an area of Ireland where even the smallest local story or photograph could make a big impact internationally.

We will also link to interesting people and events in the areas surrounding this raised bog. We also wish to highlight the traditions associated with turf in this area. Whilst this project is about restoring a number of raised bogs, we want to celebrate everything to do with bogs, past present and future, so if you have stories and memories of days on the bog, please let us know and we’ll share them.

(For an example, see our Killyconny Bog page, where local turf cutting is remembered HERE)
