Landscape nature

Oristown Bog, Co. Meath.

I’ve always loved being outdoors, just wandering about seeing the multitude of differences in a small area. Yesterday I spent a few hours walking through Oristwon Bog in Co Meath. it was full of the expected and the unexpected.

Historically speaking this bogland was divided among resettled Irish many generations ago. Some have since sold on their rights others can trace their ownership to all the way back.

Unfortunately like many bog lands this is also used as a dumping site but the local Navan conservation society are working to clear it up which is great news. this particular bog also has a checkered past when the remains Brendan Megraw, one of The Disappeared were located in 2014.
