Synopsis Following a band of turf cutters from North Kerry throughout the cutting season from April toSeptember, the film gives insight into a way of life that will soon be forgotten. The men come to the bog to cut turf that they use as fuel for the winter. They come also to reconvene after the long winter and catch up on news and banter… they tell funny stories and sad tales. The film captures the sense of community that they feel and that will die with them.
