Public Input Sought On The Re-Wetting Of Two Offaly Bogs

People are encouraged to make submissions through the public consultation.

A public consultation is underway regarding the re-wetting of two Offaly bogs. 

Bord na Móna plans to stabilise surface areas of Pollagh and Oughter, south-west of Tullamore,  by adding natural plants and vegetation to encourage regeneration of the peatland habitat. 

It's part of the €108 million Peat Rehabilitation Scheme announced by the government in November. 

The deadline for submissions, which can be made via email, is January 24th.
