A peatlands scheme in Carlow’s getting close to €8,000 in funding.

The Drummin Bog Project‘s been awarded €7,800 by Heritage Minister Malcolm Noonan.

The Carlow Kilkenny Green TD says the money will be used to install monitors to assess the installations of peat dams, and a weather station on the bog.

It’ll also go towards engaging with local secondary schools in the project.
