About: This is a scientific paper which looks at the reasons why mountain bogland is sometimes subject to slippage and landslide. The authors use two locations in North West Wicklow as case studies in an attempt to define the characteristics of peat and the underlying geological conditions that make land slippage likely. The upland locations studied are Kilbride and Silsean (also spelled Shileshawn).
