I live in Lisdoonvarna and just got a tonne of topsoil mixed with well rotted manure, and a ton of manure delivered.

The chap's name is Frank, he's based in Newmarket on Fergus in Clare, but it might be worth giving him a call to see will he deliver that far? Decent rates too...

Hi Risin
Just wondering if you had any luck sourcing your topsoil. I'm in Galway too and on the look for good quality topsoil.
Thanks.

Hi MsBrindie

Didnt get a chance to call the guy ref above yet. I got a small amount from a guy in claddagh who advertised in the Galway Advertiser last week. I just piled it in the corner of the garden and wont know if I need more until I put it in the bed this weekend.

Regards
Risin
