Our annual Women and Agriculture Conference returns this year as a one-day event taking place on Wednesday 25 October in the Lyrath Estate, Kilkenny. The theme of this year’s conference is: Finding the Balance.

We will hear from Harrison Gardner, star of RTÉ’s Build Your Own Home and co-founder of Common Knowledge.

Our conference will cover topics including “Conflict Resolution” with agricultural solicitor Aisling Meehan, Clare O’Keeffe from Succession Ireland, psychotherapist Claire Lyons Forde and Alice Doyle from the IFA farm family committee.

Financial expert, Carol Brick, will talk all things pensions, while Bridget Kearney from Belle Femme Lingerie in Kilkenny will discuss finding the balance in your wardrobe following illnesses and change.

Author, speaker and free diver Clare Walsh will also take us from living with her parents at 32 to charting her own path.

Tickets for this one-day conference are €70 and can be purchased online at www.ifj.ie/ticket or through a postal order/cheque. Send your name, address and phone number to: Customer Service Department, Irish Farmers Journal, Irish Farm Centre, Bluebell, Dublin 12.
