Clara Bog. 06/12/88; Offaly; 460 ha; 53°19'N 007°37'W. Biogenetic Reserve; Nature Reserve. One of the largest raised bogs left in Ireland. The site consists of hummocks, hollows, pools and Sphagnum lawns and is unique in the degree of development and varieties of the soak systems present. Soak systems are now almost extinct due to peat extraction. The site is important for several nationally rare mosses and invertebrates. Human activities include conservation education and, outside the reserve, peat extraction continues. Ramsar site no. 415.
