A lump of “bog butter” that weighs about 10 kilograms, or 22 pounds was found five meters deep into a bog in Ireland. Since then it has been moved to the National Museum of Ireland for conservation.

“A find like this is extremely significant in terms of our history and heritage. It does smell like butter and although I did not taste it there was a strong smell from my hands after touching and holding it.” – Savina Donohoe, curator of the Cavan County Museum.
