Irish wholemeal flour for Irish Brown Bread: coarse or extra coarse

I live in the US and am able to find real Irish flour (Odlums brand). I would like to know whether I should use the "coarse" or the "extra-coarse". I would like to try and recreate as best as I can the delicious brown bread I enjoyed baked by many an innkeeper and B&B owner during my visit to Ireland. Thank you.

You could always make it with both, compare, and decide for yourself.
David Lebovitz has both eaten the bread in Ireland and made it from King Arthur Flour recipe, which uses coarse (not extra coarse). He loves this recipe.
And, go to BBC or Delia Smith for a local versions.
It all sounds delicious!
