Corlea, county Longford

Nearest town: Longford

The wooden roadway was constructed by laying down tree trunks and then placing oak planks across them
as if it were an upside-down train-track.
Mortices were then cut into the ends of most of the planks and pegs were driven down into the bog to stabilise it
- until it sank below the surface
