Fitter (Current Employee) –  Kilberry, County Kildare10 August 2019
Ive worked there 30 yrs and regrettably now being pushed out due to peat production ceaseation. I made lots of friends and aquantances, l learned so much about myself, peat production, and machine maintance. I enjoyed my time there and at this stage I am dissappointed to end my career with them this way.

Fitter Assistants (Former Employee) –  Thurles, County Tipperary16 June 2016
I really liked working in Bord Na Mona it was a really good experience to see what it was like to work with a fitter in a factory fixing machines used in the production of peat, it was also a experience to work with one the biggest producers in Ireland.

got on great with my co workers and had really good fun with them while we got are work done.

I did find the early mornings hard as I was up at 6 am but I was young and could deal with it now.

I really liked fixing different machines and found it very interesting
Pros
got a dinner on a Saturday
Cons
Early starts

Machine Driver (Former Employee) –  Longford15 May 2012
As a tractor driver it is a very hands on job. Team work is a must as there will always be a time when you need help. It is a very tough job and patience is a virtue which is honed in this environment. As it is weather dependant everyone is given their job to do by the supervisor and this has to be done as quickly and precisely as possible. Most days I would have to work on my own initiative. It is a friendly place to work and everybody tends to get along with one another. I learned very quickly what I was expected to do and because of this I was trusted with more jobs and a supervisory role.
Pros
outdoors, easy atmosphere
Cons
very long hours.
