About your host

I am a fourth generation sheep farmer in the Connemara Mountains overlooking Killary Harbour. I am a farmer and we care for approx 1000 sheep. We train our sheep dogs to listen to commands that control the sheep from long distances. We shear our sheep by hand and cut turf using the old tools the "slean" which is a unique experience in itself.
