Irish boglands

Anyone here know which national body is responsible for our peatlands? I visited a local bog recently and noted extensive drainage works have been carried out on part of it and I think this activity should be reported. Not sure if I am posting in the right forum so mods feel free to move if necessary.

The first thing is to figure out whether it's a protected Natura site, you can do that by looking get the map on the NPWS website. If it is a Natura site, they will most certainly be interested if they weren't informed.
