Overview of the Irish Sheep Sector Markets & Production

The structure of Ireland’s sheep flock has undergone dramatic changes over the past 15 years. In 1996 the national flock consisted of 45,853 sheep farmers with 4.72 million ewes. Since then approximately 15,000 farmers have exited sheep production and the national ewe flock has shrunk to under 2.5 million ewes.
