Last of the turf cots.
It is the last of the turf cots of Poulnasherry and the wreck can be seen from Blackweir Bridge as you look east.. This one was once about 25ft in length and 12ft in width. Flat bottomed they could go right to the shore load up and bring the turf to the turf boats anchored in deeper channels in Poulnasherry Bay. They were pushed by poles and used the turning tides to get either up or down the bay. They would have been able to get right up to where Lisdeen recycling Centre and take on loads of turf from the peat bogs all around.Blackweir bridge was designed so that at high tide it could pass under the central arch.
