Gold mining equipment has become increasingly popular for people seeking to earn a living in Ireland.
We recently spoke to an Irish gold miner, who said he was willing to take the risk of spending his own money on equipment in order to mine gold.
The miner said: I was in London last week and I was told about the prospect of mining gold, and the prices were very high.
I thought it would be a good idea to take a risk and go and buy some equipment and I thought I would be able to earn money in Ireland if I do it well.
In the video above, the miner explains how he got the equipment and explains the challenges of mining in Ireland and the challenges that come with the equipment.
Irish gold is the third largest gold market in the world.

Irish gold mining can be dangerous.
Gold miners are routinely injured by the high levels of exposure to dangerous and hazardous chemicals in mining operations, including cyanide.
The Government has announced a number of measures to help reduce the number of fatalities from these incidents.
In a statement, the Irish Gold Council said:We would encourage anyone in Ireland interested in the mining and gold industry to visit our website or contact us.
