Friends of the Irish Environment need your help. We have applied for funding to help stop the mechanised destruction of Ireland’s Peatland Bogs from the European Outdoor Conservation Association (EOCA), a group of outdoor companies raising money to put into conservation projects. The money will only be used directly for expenses like funding advertisements in rural papers – FIE members work as volunteers. We have reached the shortlist and the public can now vote for their favourite conservation project. Please go to

to vote and spread the word about this vital cause – and ask all your colleagues, family and friends to get involved. Please vote to help stop the destruction now!
