Especially in the northern part of Ireland (not Northern Ireland) you can come a cross quite a few acres of bog land. The picture has been taken on the isle of Inishbofin. There you often  see rural people at work in the old tradition of cutting peat. The peat will then be piled up in order to dry before one can use it to burn in a fireplace. If you visit local pubs in Ireland in colder days, you will smell the special air of peat fires and if you are lucky you will even get a seat beside the fireplace.
