The Story of Turf Cutting in Ireland *Those Days are Gone* Irish History Documentary

Turf Cutting in Ireland

This video tells the story of how Turf was harvested in the bog and the importance that it had for the people living in rural Ireland. We show the turf being cut as it would have been through the centuries in Ireland. We film each step required to produce turf capable of heating an Irish dwelling and as a source of fuel for cooking. In this film we also show the more modern methods used today to harvest peat on a commercial scale.
