Abbeyleix Bog calendar for 2022 set to highlight ‘a local nature gem’

Volunteers at Abbeyleix Bog Project have produced a new calendar for 2022.

This aims to celebrate the rich natural history and amenity value of the local biodiversity hotspot and raise money for the ongoing conservation and restoration work on site.

This year’s calendar is the third produced with past editions proving very popular and selling out annually.

Photo submissions were invited earlier this year with local and visiting photographers who submitted a wide range of beautiful photos for consideration – 14 photos in all made the cut!

The calendar is available each Saturday morning at Abbeyleix Market right up to Christmas.

Local outlets in Abbeyleix include Mueller & O’Connell Bakery, Abbeyleix Post Office (SuperValu) and Clealands.

The calendar can also be purchased at AllBooks and Bookmarks in Portlaoise as well as at Centra Ballyroan.

A spokesperson said: “Each calendar costs €10 or three for €25.

“Abbeyleix Bog Project thanks all the photographers who make the production of the calendar possible and all our supporters, visitors, and friends.”
