They learned about all the wildlife that live there and even saw a badger’s sett.Paddy spoke to the girls about the bog’s history and also the importance of bogland for the environment.The girls had lots of fun playing in the mud and in the river.Afterwards the girls returned to Sliabh Beagh and had a hot lunch followed by a disco. There was just enough time on the way home to round the day off with an ice cream!
