Cutting the Turf

Sales price: 585,00 €

Medium; Acrylic on Canvas

Size; 16" x 12"


Every Spring the years supply of turf was cut. The farmer used his "slean" to cut his sods in a straight line and then he threw them up on the bank. With the bog-barrow they were spread out for drying. Once dry they were ready for footing, 6 to 8 sods against each other in a cone shape mound, a "coireog".Finally they were all gathered into a "rick" and covered.
