Thread Name: Yellow Clay
Subject: Yellow Clay
In Cushie Butterfield, she makes balls of Yaller Clay. In Castlecomer (just North of Kilkenny) there was a practice calle "Dancing the Culm" which was a way of making fuel for the fire by mixing anthracite 'slack' and yellow clay into balls which were allowed to dry, and then burned.

Could these be connected?
