Irish Turf Wars by Loretto on 30 June 2013 3:49pm
 
A bog near my hometown has been in the news a lot since June 2012. I had to write a blog post about what is going on in Ireland at the moment regarding the right to cut turf....

That was interesting. I didn't know anything about turf wars before this.

I am torn about this issue Sue. Bogs allegedly take hundreds of years to replenish, but some fella stated it took 30 years. Then you hear that Bord na Mona, The Irish Turf Board, paid a man for a few thousand acres of bogland, telling him they were making it into a preservation, and two years later they were cutting turf on it.
