Moneygal Bog is one of the most westerly active raised bogs in Northern Ireland. The site is a large one, with a well-developed dome and one the finest hummock and pool complexes in Northern Ireland. The pools are arranged concentrically around the site of an old bog-burst. The peatland flora is dominated by active bog vegetation with a high cover of bog-mosses, including the hummock-forming species Sphagnum imbricatum and S. fuscum.
