The year 2020 has been filled with extraordinary challenges.

The COVID-19 pandemic affected farmers from coast to coast, but it proved one fact of life, farming never stops or gives up.

Watch: sit back, relax and enjoy a slideshow of your pictures from throughout the year.

Merry Christmas and a happy new year from Philip, Jerome, Claire and the rest of the team at the Irish Farmers Journal picture desk.

See you all next year!
