Take a walk through the unique but spectacular Connemara Boglands. A bog is a freshwater wetland of soft, spongy ground consisting mainly of partially decayed plant matter called peat. Connemara was intrinsically linked to the boglands as peat was the only source of fuel for many people. There is a lot of back-breaking work involved in cutting, footing, gathering and saving turf(dried out peat sods) and traditionally, the whole family were called upon to work on the bog. There are no boglands on the Aran Islands, however, Connemara people used to sail out to the islands on Hookers to trade turf.
