Texaco garage Clonkeen Road has peat briquettes selling at €17.50 for 5 bales. Does anyone know a better price than that?

I buy in bulk - a pallet at a time - it works out at 2.90 each (128 in a pallet lasts a whole winter for us) - you need somewhere to put them - but it saves picking odd ones up every time you are at a garage (or forgetting too?) Check goldenpages for coal merchants in your area.

Coal comes in 20kg or 40kg bags. The price of a bag will depend on the grade and quality of the coal.
If you live in a rural area check out your local dairy cooperative for good solid fuel deals (especially this time of the year).

€3.20 is very cheap for single bales, I paid between 3.75 and 4 euro last winter. Think I'll look for bulk deals this year!

Just called two places and they are charging €4.50 and €4.70 per bale, so €3.52 is not bad after all !

I just thought Id repeat this post I made in September last year. Now is the time to approach your local cooperative as they are building up their stock for the winter season.

What about buying loose briquettes from Bord na Mona? Last time I checked they were €149/tonne this works out at half price if briquettes in a shop are €3.75/bale. Only thing is that you need a car trailer to collect them.
