Native woodland and wind farm development on cutaway peatlands
Coillte Nature and Bord na Móna are working together on an area of 338 hectares at the Littleton Bog Complex on the border of Co. Kilkenny and Co. Tipperary
Littleton Bog Complex, which is located 3 km east of Urlingford on the Tipperary/Kilkenny border.
Up until 2017, the majority of Bawnmore was managed for industrial milled peat production and was dominated by bare peat and recolonising vegetation.
In 2017, Bord na Móna announced the closure of the Littleton Briquette factory and the cessation of industrial peat production in several cutaway bogs within the Littleton Bog Group, including Bawnmore
Bord na Móna is proposing to develop a wind farm on Littleton Bog located in County Tipperary.
This Bog Group is close to the communities of Gortnahoe, Littleton, New Birmingham, Twomileborris and Urlingford.
