Peat Bogs on Achill Island

stacking peat, achill island, irelandAchill Island is full of peat bogs, and when we were there, people were in the middle of stacking the already cut peat. After reading about cutting peat in the books by Neil Williams and Christine Breen, it was great to actually see part of the process. Someday, I would like to see them cutting it, too. Until then, here is a video of cutting peat on YouTube.
