Young Kerry lads in from the country selling turf in Killarney, about 1906.
This lantern slide was produced by the Keystone Photographic Co.
They like to carry as much as possible on their donkey carts, with turf neatly stacked on top.

Church Street or Ashe Street?
What’s in a name? We have bigger things to trouble us in February 2021.
Does this word for an illegal pub exist anywhere outside Ireland? Once upon a time in Ireland shebeen’s were popular. They were often places where póitín was sold.
During the recent lockdown, shebeens are having a revival. The Gardaí have raided quite a few recently.
The word shebeen comes from the Irish sibín meaning a mugful.
Only a mug would visit one nowadays but that’s a whole other word altogether.
