More than half way through March and it’s been a cold month this far in Belleek. We dodged the worst of the snow from the “Beast from the East” and the follow up cold spell on St. Patrick’s Weekend.
The East Coast and South East of Ireland have had a good covering of snow on both occasions. Once this latest spell ends we might get some Spring-like weather?!
Anyhow March has been a busy month here at The Store. We took delivery of a new batch of our ever popular Mighty Turf Sacks and we are well chuffed with them. This new batch even features smoke coming from the cottage chimney. They are sure to add a touch of Ireland to fireplaces. We also updated our gift tags which come with each Mighty Turf Sack and our Breesy Mountain postcard was re-printed for 2018 too. We are currently offering 10% off each purchase of a Mighty Turf Sack, just enter the following code in the discount code box on our Checkout page: spring
We have also upgraded our computer system, if truth be told I was getting a bit frustrated with the lack of speed of our computer. This is a consequence of our business getting ever busier. So in order to maintain our quality of customer care and speed of order processing we went for the the upgrade. Big thanks are due to Callum our in-house IT Specialist who did a superb job.
With Spring coming we also made some changes to our turf store with installation of a new floor. It helps maximise the space we now need to store stock and have it ready for despatch. Both Callum and Darragh helped implement these changes.
Next Sunday, 25th March, morning the clocks will go forward by one hour. The longer evenings will be with us then and before long we will be maximising the longer days with the commencement of turf cutting operations 2018. Of course you will be welcome to join us out on the Bog by taking one of of our Turf Bog Tours.
Now for some of that Spring-like weather……
