Peat on Pellets - county Clare

Avril Brand

Kilrush, Ireland

Artist's Description

Another view of peat (turf) drying out in heaps on wooden pellets… In the ‘old’ days, the peat would be packed in little piles like pyramids. There are still areas (in fact, not far from where Iive but I did not see it done this way this year) where you will find the neat little rows of peat ‘pyramids’.

A popular event at festivals, like the Rose of Clare field day, is to have a ‘peat packing competition’… stacking peat as high as possible.
