In the foreground of the photo above is what is commonly referred to as bogland. A bog is a wet area of soft, spongy ground consisting mainly of water and decaying plant matter called peat. Peat bogs are prevalent in Ireland along the mountain slops of the west coast and throughout the midland. They form in areas of heavy rainfall and near poorly draining lake basins created by glaciers during the most recent ice age.
