Thom,
FYI peat is reddish brown NOT black. I've observed workers in peat bogs and they do not appear in any way to be black. The source of my material was NOT a "Coat of Arms/bolierplate mill" It was Leathanach(The Irish People) Mean Fomhair, Who specialize in such matters in an attempt to keep the Irish Language and Irish names alive. They would encourage you and I to use the original O'Duibhginn form of our surname
