Kinvara is presently suffering from a turf famine, which is attributed to a notice put up under the heading of “Kinvara Sinn Fein Club”, fixing the price, owing to the exorbitant prices hitherto paid for seven cart loads at £6. Turf sellers have decided not to bring any further supplies to the village until the price – hitherto £7 10s per six cart load – be fixed.
