Does anyone know any compost of bark mulch suppliers? (by the truck load)

I found a company in Galway, but they wanted to charge me over €800 for a truck load of mulch...Shocked

Ennis County Coucil don't sell of their compost, they use it internally.

I am based in Clare...anyone know a company?

Apologies if this is the wrong place or asked before....and before you say "why not make your compost" ... I am slowly campaigning for one...

These guys seem to have a local supplier in Co. Clare.

And I wouldn't put that stuff in my garden, my plants would probably head for the cliffs.

I called a few numbers from the CRE website, but no luck yet... the journey continues.

Thanks

If you can find a friendly farmer who keeps cattle in sheds for part of the year and uses straw for bedding then he will have tonnes of good compost lying around. The straw sooks up the liquid waste making the compost rich in nitrogen and gives a better structure to the compost. I have a friend who lives locally who drops around 2 or 3 tonnes when I need it. It saves him paying someone to haul it away. I give him a few bob for his trouble and everyone is happy!
