The Bog of Allen.

Somewhere in County Offaly, County Meath, County Kildare, County Laois, or County Westmeath.

Eamonn Farrell writes:

Members of the ‘Clonbulloge’ Cowboys horse riding group from the Racefield Riding Stables in Clonbulloge County Offaly, take a beer break during a four hour trek across the Bog of Allen.

The area they rode through has now been reclaimed by heavy vegetation and harbours bog lakes, fields of bog cotton, deer, foxes, pine martens and buzzards.

Indeed you could be forgiven for thinking you were riding in the African Bush.
