This week's 10 ways you can tell you are a turf king. We think you will all agree with 5!

It’s that time of year again when we turn our thoughts to the bog! So this week 10 ways takes a look at turf see if you recognise yourself in this one!

  1. You know the bog like the back of your hand

Been there every summer since you were a nipper you know your plot and by God you know it well.

  1. You always bring the bottle of tea

Sure it’s the bog you’re in not some desert island

  1. You forget every year just how long footing takes

Yeah so did we

  1. You were lucky if you got to go on the tractor ride home while the others were left footing

That was always a great run.

  1. Your back gets broken

So much bending down, my God why is the ground so far away!

  1. You never found any of these bog bodies or anything cool like they do on the telly

No just more turf and a bit of bog oak from time to time.

  1. For some reason its hotter in the bog

We don’t know why this is but its always bloody hot there

  1. Packing the trailer had t be done correctly

You had to do it right so that the turf won’t fall off.

  1. It’s a family affair

Mammy, daddy, and the childer are in the bog that day. Sure its like a mini holiday or a mini work camp!

  1. The turf makes for a lovely fire in the winter

And that’s what its all about. In fact we might even light a wee one this evening to celebrate.
