Two of the 17 project sites have been selected as demonstration sites as they display a range of project actions and are located close to population centres. At each of these sites, visitor information panels describe the overall LIFE project and features particular to that site.
(Site No. 12) is located 7kms south-west of Kells, Co. Meath.
This site contains a significant area of high bog which includes typical bog vegetation and topography, including hummock/hollow systems and pools.
(Site No. 15) is located 4 kms south-east of Borrisokane in Co. Tipperary.
This site supports a good diversity of raised bog microhabitats, including extensive hummock/hollow complexes. This raised bog is one of the more southerly raised bogs in the country, adding significantly to its ecological value.
