Black bog cat

Yesterday, just outside the village of Cong, we saw a large black cat. I mean, it was bigger than a dog - mountain lion sized. It had short ears, large paws and a feline, sinuous tail.

When we went to Ashford Castle, none of the falconers there had any idea what it was. But today in a gift shop we saw we a doodad that was a "lucky bog cat". Then we realized it was a thing.

We really saw it!
