To support on his farm in the shadows of Mushera above Millstreet Town

There is a real feeling of Spring in the Air, with cattle out in many fields grazing the early lush grass that grew in the mild weeks of January. Spring Lambs can be seen bouncing around their caring mothers, and even a few early daffodils are peeping out. All telling us that Spring is here and can Summer be far behind.
