Irishmen sell dirt to US emigrants
"Two Irishmen have set up a business selling dirt to nostalgic Irish Americans who want a handful of 'the mother country' on their graves.

Pat Burke, 27, and Alan Jenkins, 65, have just shipped their first $US1 million load of 'official' Irish soil to New York - at $US15 ($NZ23) per 340 gram bag - and confidently expect it will be followed by many more.

'The demand has been absolutely phenomenal,' Burke, an agricultural scientist from County Tipperary, said on Friday."
