How did women use to iron clothes?

Before electric irons, people used to have an iron with a handle at the top. The iron was hollow and a hole at the back allowed the user to pour hot water in, so that the iron was heated up. Alternatively the iron was placed on top of a stove to heat up before being used - I remember my grandmother using both these methods in Ireland.
