Another important visitor

We had the honour of welcoming Michael Creed, Ireland’s Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine to our farm on Friday 1 September.

It was a pleasure to show him our newly opened Visitor Centre. This is located on the Hill of Uisneach which is part of our working farm. This is an Irish royal site that marks the sacred centre of Ireland.

In May, the President of Ireland, Michael D Higgins took part in the annual Uisneach Bealtaine Celebration here. The Hill of Uisneach has played a part in just about every significant Irish event; political, cultural, religious, mythological and geographical! This enigmatic hill is one of the most sacred and historic sanctuaries in the world.

I’m pretty sure that there aren’t many other people who farm and manage an historical, sacred site!
