Behind every good farm is a great farm woman so it’s no wonder that all paths will lead to the Mount Wolseley Hotel on Thursday April 26th as the Women & Agriculture Spring Series runs its third event of the year.
Set to inform, educate and entertain, the series organised by the Irish Farmers Journal and sponsored by FBD will be of upmost interest not only to women working in agriculture but any lady living in rural Ireland.
With a stellar cast of speakers, there is something for everyone. Kicking off the event will be the Chairperson for the evening, Sue Nunn. A name familiar to many in the Leinster region, Sue is the popular morning time presenter on KCLR FM. Then taking to the stage will be Independent Nutritionist, Paula Mee who’ll no doubt put a spring in everyone’s step. If you’re looking for a healthier and happier ‘you’,
Paula will have great advice on eating better, losing weight and keeping off those pounds that you’ve tried hard to shed since January. However, it’s not all about weight loss. She’ll also dispel some of those nutritional myths that simply aren’t true, for example.
Getting finances in fine shape before summer will be top of the agenda for Irish Country Living’s Money Mentor, Peter Young. Over 350 families are now involved in Peter’s ‘Operation Cashflow’ which provides essential advice on managing your household budget. So if you work hard, pay your bills but still feel that there is not enough money to make ends meet, then you simply can’t miss Peter Young’s advice on managing and maximising your disposable income.
Get the ovens fired up as one of the nation’s favourite chefs, Neven Maguire is coming to Carlow. With the season that’s in it, Neven will be preparing succulent Irish spring lamb as well as the most delicious chocolate and fruit desert. And with his latest book, ‘Neven’s Country Living, Volume Two’ now on the Irish bestsellers list, all the recipes can be found in between its covers.
Finally, farm safety, innovation and resilience will feature high on the agenda as Siobhan Lawless from the Foods of Athenry and dry stock farmer Peter Gohery from Galway, both FBD customers, will tell their inspiring stories. Adrian Taheny, Sales & Marketing Director of FBD who warmly welcomed the opportunity to sponsor the events remarked, “Certain to inspire and educate, we believe these conferences will serve as a valuable learning experience. Our commitment to Irish agriculture and the Country enterprise goes back 40 years and we remain loyal in our efforts to strengthen and support the farming community in all its endeavours.”
Mairead Lavery, editor of Irish Country Living concluded by saying, “The Spring Series has been built on the back of the success of our annual Women & Agriculture conference, which takes place in October. With over 650 women attending each year, it is now one of the biggest female conferences in the country. We want to continue to meet the demand for entertaining and informative events at an affordable price and we look forward to packing out the Mount Wolseley Hotel.”
