Peat is a soil that is made up of the partially decomposed remains of dead plants. Over thousands of years, these plants have accumulated on top of each other in waterlogged places. Over the centuries, poor drainage and the build up of dead plants created layer upon layer of peat. The cutting of peat for fuel began in the 17th Century and has played an important role in Irish history ever since.
