The shape of a churn

Lickerrig, Co. Galway

Most churns in the district are made with wood and are called barrel churns because the look like the shape of a barrel. There are a few dash churns in the area too. At the bottom of each churn is a hole with a plug in it. In winter churning only takes place once a week.
