Thanks to a reader, we now know the correct name of the implement in use yesterday at Ballyquintin pond: The Manure Fork.
The humble manure fork has found Fame at last.
Prior to the introduction of the muck spreader, these tools were often used to pull manure from the back of carts onto the field for spreading at a later date.
The National Trust Strangford Lough team has found a new use for it now, viz. dragging blocks of sods from ponds.
