Derrigimlagh Bog is a spectacular blanket bog near Clifden. It is a mosaic of tiny lakes and peat rich in flora and fauna. In this lonely spot two remarkable events of 20th century history took place.

In October 1907 the first commercial transatlantic message was transmitted from Marconi’s wireless telegraphy station to Glace Bay, Newfoundland, Canada. The station was burned down during the Civil War in 1922, the ruins are still visible today.
