Bord na Mona hits its turf harvesting target

Q The best summer weather for years means Bord na Mona is set to fill its turf harvesting target for the entire year, in the process safeguarding 1,500 jobs.

Some four million tonnes of peat will have been harvested by today. Last year the state-owned company had its worst harvest in its 67-year history with just 37pc of the harvest achieved.
