The NRN have developed an insightful video series highlighting the pivotal role women play in Irish agriculture. The Irish Women in Agriculture Video Series details the experiences of five women involved in different sectors of agriculture and highlights their dedication and commitment to farming.

These women include: Sinead Conry, a Pedigree Hereford breeder from Roscommon; Deirdre Divilly a dairy farmer from Galway, currently on placement in New Zealand from University College Dublin (UCD); Margaret Edgill an organic farmer from Offaly; Aoife Forde, a suckler farmer based in the Burren, County Clare; and finally, Daphne Scott a sheep farmer based in Co. Cavan, who also runs her own dog grooming, boarding kennels and mobile pet farm under the name Precious Pets.
