Two industrious Irishmen have opened up a business that caters to the 70 million compatriots who have left the green isle and are living abroad. Those who miss home can order a 0.75 lb bag of authentic Irish soil for $15 and carry around a bit of the old country wherever they go.
What truly drives the business, however, is the desire to have a handful of Irish soil tossed on top of a casket when an Irishman dies abroad.
So far, the businessmen have shipped 528,000 pounds of their dirt to the United States for approximately $1 million. You too can get yourself a handful when their website, OfficialIrishDirt.com, goes live in the near future.
