Bog has been formed over ten thousand years and strongly plays a role in remote Ireland. Every Irish Country person will have memories of turf and the bog whether its ‘footing’, ‘clamping’ and bagging turf, bringing it home on the tractor, or filling up the shed in time for winter.
There is something comforting about the sweet earth smell, the warmth and the smog it leaves outside the house as it pipes through the chimney when the turf fire is burning.
Capture the scenic beauty of the Irish countryside with Bog Buddies. Bog buddies have made a range of fun characters from the turf; including a Map of Ireland, a Shamrock and a New Home. These are a fun and quirky piece of art and a truly meaningful gift for anyone with roots in Ireland.
