I have a full clean Irish driving license since 2019.

Growing up on our family farm we complete most of our own work including grass reseeding (ploughing, discing, leveling, seeding, rolling), land reclamation using a 360 digger, slurry spreading, fertiliser spreading, drawing silage bales and stacking using a merlo telehandler.

Working on a beef farm last year I gained experience in some new aspects such as carting with large trailers. This farm made about 1500 silage bales with a Mchale Fusion so I spent a lot of time carting bales back to the yard and stacking in the yard. They owned Fendt and New Holland tractors along with two JCB 541-70 agri super telehandlers.

Other livestock experience

Grew up on our family sheep farm. Worked on a large beef farm for the summer of 2020.

Our sheep farm at home was made up of mostly commercial sheep with some pedigree sheep I bought.

We are currently very busy lambing here putting in long hours but its all worth it.

Farming background

Grew up on my families sheep farm, worked with friends and neighbors on their sheep farms, worked on a large beef farm from May till September 2020 when I left to study Agricultural Engineering. I and still actively farming on my home farm everyday outside of college hours.

Before working on the beef farm last summer I worked in a hotel for almost 2 years. I worked in 'function setup' so I was part of a team who setup large weddings, parties and other celebrations taking place in the hotel. Other roles included hotel gardening and portering. These hours in the hotel were quite long and unsociable because it involved working mostly weekends and evenings but that did not bother me and I was able to work around them at home and still enjoyed it.

For my Transition Year work Experience I worked in a large baler manufacturing factory in Ballinrobe and in Agricultural product wholesaler in Ballyglass. I found this extremely interesting seeing how the whole process happens from steel coming in right through to the finished machinery leaving on a truck. I picked these two places because of my love for machinery and how they were local to me but they made such high quality machinery that can be found anywhere in the world. This is what made me decide I wanted to study Agricultural Engineering after school.
