This Eye Spy Wildlife on Sliabh Beagh Booklet is part of the Keep Well campaign funded by the Irish Government. It is aimed at showing people of all ages how we can mind our own physical and mental health & wellbeing by adding healthy and helpful habits to our daily and weekly routines. Recording wildlife on your regular walk adds extra richness and will encourage you to go out more often.
The booklet was developed by the Heritage Section, CANN project and Monaghan Library Service and helps to promote the importance of blanket bogs such as Sliabh Beagh by exploring some of the special species found there.
Sliabh Beagh is a biodiversity rich upland blanket bog site, located in north County Monaghan and stretching into Fermanagh and Tyrone. It is home to many important and endangered wildlife species, including the Hen Harrier, Curlew and the Marsh Fritillary butterfly.
