Patricia O’Halloran crossed paths with her husband Vincent in 2000 when they attended a Macra Christmas party. Five years later, the pair tied the knot and together they manage a dairy farm in Killaloe, Callan, Co Kilkenny

The O’Hallorans milk approximately 160 dairy cows and when they have calved, Patricia takes ownership of rearing the youngsters. While there may be no set start or finish time for a farmer, Patricia makes sure to take time out for herself.
