Anything can be found on the beautiful unruly hills of Louth’s Cooley peninsula – from army training on the rugged terrain to wild goats nibbling on hillside flora. Indeed, if the Gods are feeling generous, you might be lucky enough to spot a Kearney brother – after all, this is where they spent their youth running riot, with rugby balls in tow.

You’ll also find Matthew and Clodagh McGreehan’s farm where they live with their children (Thomas (11), Maryrose (nine), John (eight), Matthew (six) and baby Catherine). The McGreehan family are the very reason Irish Country Living found itself in the wilds of Cooley, because they are engaged in a very unique type of farming – social farming.
