Shane Fitzgerald

Shane farms with his dad in the shadows of the Comeragh mountains. Shane is dedicated to the environmental and economic well-being of his farm and is one of a number of pioneering Tirlán milk suppliers that are part of the Open Source Future Farm programme ran by Tirlán in partnership with Teagasc.
Shane is seen as exemplar when it comes to best sustainable farming practice, and – as a young farmer himself – has strong views on how young people could, and should, be encouraged into dairying as a career.

Shane’s a young farmer who believes, rightly, that young people are going to be most affected by the sustainability decisions that are made today. Therefore, he says, young farmers should have a say in policy, as it affects dairying, and have some influence in how the industry goes about achieving its goals.
