Song of The Bog Conference

Wednesday 10 May 2017

Lough Neagh Discovery Centre

Bogs have been part of the consciousness of this landscape for centuries. They have inspired poetry, provided a window on the past, a source of warmth and a home to the richest of ecologies.  The Lough Neagh landscape has more than its fair share of these riches.Peat joins the built, natural and cultural elements of our heritage like nothing else. Of course, there are challenges in any talk of bogs and there are often problems of perception but the opportunities of this unique part of our landscape are immense.

The bog is not only a reservoir of carbon trapped by the plants that grew at its surface; it is a repository of information about our past and particularly about the ways communities used or abused the landscapes that supported them.

This conference, which was made possible by funding supplied by Heritage Lottery Fund, will we hope be the beginning of a conversation around the value of bog lands to us all. We invite you to come along to this day and start our journey towards unlocking the song of the bog.
