Altikeeragh Nature Reserve: These include blanket bog vegetation with some raised bog characteristics, a well developed pool system, flat bog plains and localized flushes and soaks.

The vegetation of the intact bog surface is characterized by Sphagnum mosses, heather, cross-leaved heath, deergrass, hare's-tail cotton grass and occasional crowberry. Much of the blanket bog surrounding the intact unit has been cut for turf, creating a mosaic of habitats, depending on peat depth and the age of cutting. The bog provides habitat for upland birds such as snipe, red grouse and raven.
