Artfulparks Ltd. is the brain child of Brian Gorman, owner and Managing Director of Artfulparks Ltd. Brian has worked all his life in his family’s business – Gorman Earthworks Ireland. This business started out cutting turf and harvesting bogs.
In 2019 Bord na Mona began to close 62 bogs across Ireland, costing up to 500 jobs across the country. The negative environmental effect of peat harvesting is well documented, but that doesn’t spell the end for the bog community or the land that is left. Gorman Earthworks Ireland were one of the first family businesses to be awarded contracts in relation to bog restoration works for Bord Na Mona and the National Parks and Wildlife Services (NPWS).
Using this achievement Brian founded Artfulparks Ltd. to continue to transform and create a new vision and future for boglands. Artfulparks Ltd. is the product of Brian’s creative effort and desire to give back to the environment that sustained his family’s business for over 50 years. Artfulparks Ltd. are now restoring their bogland and developing a luxurious, scenic sculpture park with a man-made lake to share with the community.
This is a passion project and a labour of love for Brian and his family. It has taken a long time to get Artfulparks to this point and we are ready to show the beauty of our boglands and provide the community with a new perspective on what this environment has to offer.
Our mission is to take cut away bogs and turn them into highly attractive places of natural beauty coupled with artistic vision.
