Puppy power

Ronan Byrne, aka the Friendly Farmer, with Bess the Pyrenean mountain dog.

Traditionally in Ireland, the working farm dog has always been the border collie and this is still the case today. The black and white pooches with their low, loping, stride are still a familiar sight on the backroads and laneways of the countryside moving their woolly charges from one pasture to the next.

Thu, Jul 30, 2015

The Restaurants Association of Ireland says that there is now a crisis in the shortage of chefs in the country, and an investment in training is needed urgently. The organisation is calling on the Minister for Education Jan O'Sullivan to re-establish CERT, the former State Tourism Training Agency, with immediate effect.
