      It is estimated that almost one in every four American people claim
      some kind of Irish roots. This is an amazing statistic given that the
      entire population of Ireland is just over five million people. During
      the famine times in Ireland in the mid 18th century literally over
      one million people starved to death while another million people fled
      to the four corners of the globe. America was the preferred
      destination of choice but the route was a treacherous and perilous
      one for those brave enough to take it.
      A whole new industry has now sprung up in Ireland with thousands of
      Irish Americans tracing their family roots every year. Ronald Reagan
      and John F. Kennedy being but two famous Irish American names.
      Genealogy has become big business in Ireland in the past decade with
      dozens of companies only too happy to assist eager clients trace
      their family origins. Family crest names and family tree charts are
      the most common items sought after.
      Imagine however being able to actually own your own little piece of
      Ireland, complete with title deed for less than an evening's
      entertainment? Couple that with an original heart rendered poem in
      parched paper detailing the history of this piece of land and you
      have an ideal gift for any family member of friend with an Irish
      attachment. This gift is all the more unique in that the plots of
      land in question are bogland, which the Irish government and local
      agencies are stringently trying to protect as a piece of Irish
      heritage. Bogland is where turf is cut and is unique to certain parts
      of Ireland. Turf is a fuel that is burned in fires and smells
      beautiful in comparison to other fuels used in fires....
