An Analysis of Farm Structures & Incomes

There has been much discussion on farm incomes in recent months. The debate on farm incomes, their levels and how they should be measured has revealed a considerable amount of uncertainty and confusion. This presentation outlines the current structure of Irish farms and attempts to clarify how farm incomes are measured and more importantly show the wide variation that exists within the overall "average" national farm income figure. The input of off-farm income to farm household income is also examined. The principal sources of data used are the Teagasc National Farm Survey and CSO agricultural income data.

Farming and the Burren

In terms of its natural and cultural heritage, the Burren landscape is a veritable oasis. The Burren uplands play host to over 70% of Ireland’s native flora, hundreds of burial sites, stone forts and ancient ecclesiastical sites. It is a key flagship for the Irish environment, remarkably rich, diverse and intact. However, the Burren is a landscape that depends very much on farming activity for the retention of its rich heritage. For over six thousand years, farmers have shaped the Burren. In much the same way, the unique challenges presented by karst landscape of the Burren have shaped use of the land and evoked distinctive agricultural responses.
