I have been farming sheep and cattle for 20 years on the lands of Sliabh Ri and Boherard which has been farmed by my family for more than 2 centuries.

Growing up on the farm allowed me to play and learn among fairy forts, ruined monasteries, holy wells and ancient settlements.   The knowledge of this land has been passed from generation to generation, the myths and legends as well as the hard facts of a farming life having seen an Irish history and culture defined by ‘the land’ and it’s ownership.

I am passionate about sharing these stories and showing off the true Ireland, young and old.
