|Moninea Bog is one of the best remaining examples of an active raised bog within the drumlin landscape that occurs across the southern counties of Northern Ireland. The peatland flora typically supports a high cover of bog-mosses, including the hummock-forming species Sphagnum imbricatum and S. fuscum and the nationally rare S. pulchrum. All three native British sundew species, Drosera rotundifolia, D. anglica and D. intermedia, are also present.|
