Irish Peatland Conservation CouncilWelcome to the Irish Peatland Conservation Council (IPCC). Fáilte. We hope our web site will help you to get to know us better. It’s your gateway to  the save the bogs campaign. We encourage you to visit us at the Bog of Allen Nature Centre. Please help us to keep in touch with one another.

intbogdayirelandIPCC extend a global invitation to all our friends, visitors and supporters to take part in International Bog Day 2014. On the 27th July there are lots of different peatland awareness events planned all around Ireland. You can stay on top of the bog on a guided walk or you can get into it by bog snorkling. You can even taste bog cake and elderflower cordial. There are exhibitions, competitions, guided nature trails, talks on bog bodies, pond dipping events, scavenger hunts, bog cakes to eat and bog memorabilia meetings. Events are taking place in Kildare, Offaly, Meath, Armagh, Mayo and Roscommon. This way to the FUN!
