The Board of Agriculture, in response to requests from the Rural District Council and the Limerick County, has sent two experts to determine the presence of coal in the vicinity of Glin, County Limerick. About sixty years ago, the area’s coal mines were successfully worked by the then Knight of Glin. Three years prior, Cassell and Gardener, Scotch mining experts, visited the site and confirmed the existence of anthracite coal in several locations near the old workings. The current investigation aims to further explore the potential for coal extraction in the region.
