Inspiring stories of rural entrepreneurship in Ireland

Teagasc hosted a webinar recently in collaboration with EURAGRI, SRUC and AFBI, which looked at inspiring stories of rural entrepreneurship in Ireland.

It was the second in the EURAGRI-led Webinar Series, that aims to highlight and demonstrate the role of the entrepreneur in transforming sustainable farming and food systems.

Host Mark Gibson, Head of Teagasc Outreach & Innovation Department, was joined by guest speakers who have embarked on unique journeys in diversifying their agricultural businesses. The panellists included: Teresa Roche, Kylemore Farmhouse Cheese; Nick Cotter, Cotter Agritech; and Noelle Casey, Knockcarrig House.

Elsewhere in the webinar, Barry Caslin, Teagasc Energy and Rural Development Specialist, provided an insight into the various supports for rural entrepreneurs in Ireland.
