To prepare a "lea" field for potatoes, first of all the farmer cut any rushes that are on it. Those help to manure it.
Then it is cut and "socked" with a plough. This forms the ridge and in doing so loosens the sod and makes it easily turned up with a "loy" or spade. The manure is spread underneath the sod and the seed is set by a sharp pointed tool called a "skeebín."
It bores through the sod and dropping the seed into the holes that the "skeebín" makes is called "goggaring"
To prepare a "broken" field, that means a field that was tilled the previous year, the farmer ploughs it into ridges.
