Highlights of a Strange Year

As 2020 draws to a close we have taken the opportunity to look back upon what can only be described as a strange year. We wont dwell on the negatives but rather look at all that was achieved in the past 12 months.

Back in Febuary 2020 Turf Bog Tours received great coverage in The Fermanagh Herald. Little did we know at that point that Covid19 would soon come along and wreck our plans to operate tours in 2020.
One consequence of the Global Pandemic was homeschooling. Coupled with great Spring weather the offspring were tutored in the art of turf cutting. There was of course, always ample time for a brew and a book! The turf was home in record time too, with the turf shed filled by the end of May.
During Lockdown and the fine weather in Spring and Summer we spent a lot of time outdoors. Having a fire outdoors on the patio or camping is an essential part of the outdoor experience. No surprise then that we developed our Irish Log Torches. Expect to hear and see more on this front in 2021!
Continuing with the outdoor theme, once travel restrictions were lifted in early summer we made a bee-line for Gortahork in Northwest Donegal for some wildcamping, campfires and craic.
Another project was the creation of The Bog Team. It is a collection of leisurewear that is perfect for casual/outdoor purposes Choose from hoodys, T-shirts, sweat shirts and caps. More details here
Then to round the year off, Santa brought youngest daughter a pup for Christmas. Happy to report that Charlie is settling in well to life as a bog dog and is being well schooled by Bailey Dog.
