Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a cáirde and welcome to my Report.
It’s a good job that there is always something to keep the spirits up and this past week was no exception, Buíochas le Dia. All heads were raised in Cloghoula when a big white passenger Bus turned in the Ballinatona road at hi noon one of the days and came to a halt at the homestead of the Sheahan Family. It turned out to be a group of Farmers all the way from Canada in the United States who were curious to learn more about Conor Sheahan’s unusual breed of cattle which they saw on-line back home. I must thank the same Conor for filling me in on the details of the exciting venture. The animals are a Japanese breed of stock called Wagyu and the visitors were delighted to see them here in Ireland where they thriving and doing well. During their four hour stay the guests were free to roam the fields and farmyard buildings and ask questions etc. before sitting down to a scrumptious meal of said meat on the menu all expertly cooked and served by our own Craft Butcher in town, Tony. Conor told me it is the most expensive meat of all and is delivered by courier to the best Hotels in Dublin. This weekend the Rotterdam Team is coming to Ireland and they will be treated to Wagyu meat for their gala dinner at the Mansion House. Plans are afoot to stock some butcher shops down south in the near future. We wish the Sheahan family continued success with the latest extension to their business. But different breeds are nothing new to Ballinatona. Next door the O’Riordan family have stocked up with a herd of Dexter Cattle and doing very well. It’s great to see young farmers diversifying and reaching out to new ideas and markets. God Bless their work.
