More from Vintage Monday 2013 and An Post Rás in Listowel

These cute little chicks hatched out in Ballyduff yesterday.


Some more photos of local people enjoying Vintage Monday 2013.


Turf cutting in the war years

Turf was a very valuable commodity during the war. Lorry loads of turf were transported from rural bogs to fuel fires in Dublin. This photo from Bord na Mona Heartland shows some of the scores  of men saving turf by hand in a midland bog.
