What they burn in Ireland
To stay warm... This stuff is outlawed in a lot of places unless you are grandfathered in to burn it. Irish Turf/ Peat . Wood is imported ..birch from Lithuanian.. and for a 2x3x3 stacked ..it runs 350 Euro's . Totally ridiculous. Hunting buddy is from Dublin and visited for a couple of weeks. Said it was cold, coat stayed on almost of the time Here is a pic of the Turf/ Peat from the bogs.
These sods of Turf, or Peat, are harvested by hand from Cappabane Mountain Bog in East Clare, Ireland. Box contains .68 cubic Feet of Naturally dried turf. Turf is seasoned at least one year after retrieved from bog. Burning this product gives off a distinct aroma that is unique to the Irish Fireplace. Turf burns hotter than the same weight in wood and will burn longer. To get the most from your turf, burn in an open fireplace. Light the fire using wood or other fuels and when you are ready to settle down beside the fire add in 2 or 3 sods/fire logs. Repeat as needed. -
