Clare and Limerick may be neighbours, but they are certainly two very different counties. From the unique landscape of the Burren to the lush fields of the Golden Vale, the region has such a variance in land and farming systems. While dairy is huge in Limerick, beef is big in Clare and we profile the region’s marts on page 7.

It’s always interesting to see how people adapt to their surroundings, so Going Local spoke to a farmer involved with the BurrenLIFE programme on page 8 who is reaping the benefits of the initiative.
