IPCC is striving to save the bogs. We have already bought six bogs which are now nature reserves and we plan to buy more. You can be part of this campaign by buying a symbolic share certificate in an acre of Irish bog. You can buy a share certificate in an acre of bogland for yourself or you can purchase it as a gift for any occasion. Your action will help to save the bogs of Ireland for future generations to enjoy.
Beautiful bogs saved so far through this scheme include:
- Clochar na gCon Bog, Co. Galway
- Cummeragh River Bog, Co. Kerry
- Fenor Bog, Co. Waterford
- Lodge Bog, Co. Kildare
- Lullymore West Bog, Co. Kildare
- Scragh Bog, Co. Westmeath
- Girley Bog, Co. Meath (8.5ha)
- Ketts Lough, Co. Clare
Fenor Bog in Co. Waterford was purchased by selling symbolic share certificates. Visit Fenor Bog.
The cost of sponsoring an acre or part thereof are as follows:
- 1/16th Acre €45
- 1/8th Acre €90
- 1/4 Acre €180
- 1/2 Acre €360
- One Acre €720
You will be issued with a commemorative certificate and a book on bogs with every acre or part acre you purchase.
