The Lucky Black Bog Cat is presented on an Island Turf Crafts information card, with the following detail:
Ireland’s bogland was once home to the much sought after black bog cat which was said to roam the vast bogland near the shores of Lough Neagh. It was a larger than usual cat and lived on insects and small animals, and was said to bring luck and great wealth and happiness to those whose path it crossed.
Similar stories are told about a large black cat seen in the boglands in midland Ireland and with its intelligent cunningness always evaded capture.
Using 5,000 year old black turf from Ireland’s deepest boglands Island Turf Craft have recreated this lucky cat in hope that you too will bring a little piece of luck and happiness into your home.
Made in Ireland.
This turf is sustainably sourced from some of Ireland’s oldest boglands formed from partially decomposed vegetation, which has accumulated in waterlogged places for over five thousand years. The wet turf bog is fused using glue to create different shapes, then dried in a kiln and processed for any extra carving into beautiful Celtic Gifts.
