The Irish National Rural Network (NRN) have recently released the 2nd episode of our Video Blog (Vlog) series on farmers who are participating in Ireland’s 23 EIP-AGRI projects located throughout the country. The latest Vlog features Cyril Ó Flaithearta from the Caomhnú Árann Project who explains how this innovative, farmer-centred, locally-led project is managing the habitats of the Aran Islands to maximise their agricultural and ecological output, and also how it is making a difference at farm and community level by bringing about a collaborative spirit and social inclusion on the islands.

Episode 2 - Cyril Ó Flaithearta from the Caomhnú Árann Project

This good practice dissemination platform is just one of a number of multi-method communication strategies being implemented by the NRN to maximize the success of the objectives set out in Ireland’s Rural Development Programme (RDP) 2014-2020 on behalf of the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine (DAFM).

The EIP-AGRI initiative was set up by the European Commission to promote innovation and foster sustainable growth within the agri-food sector and rural economy through a multi-actor approach involving farmers, researchers, advisors and agri-businesses. In Ireland, EIP-AGRI projects are co-funded by the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine (DAFM) and the EU under the Rural Development Programme (RDP) 2014 – 2020.
