If the power of positivity can get a business through the COVID-19 pandemic then there’s no fear for the future of Glen Keen Farm. This is one of Ireland’s largest hill sheep farms and is located about 10km from Louisburgh on the Leenane road in Co Mayo.
It’s the farm that Catherine O’Grady Power grew up on before heading for the bright lights. “As a teenager I couldn’t wait to get out of the place. I worked with Ryanair in sales and marketing when it was a startup,” she says. She also worked with Royal Brunei Air and lived in the US where she worked in public relations, handling global brands. It was here she met Jim, an airline pilot who she went on to marry.
