The farm where robots do the heavy lifting
It was the first of its kind in the world, and it's certainly causing a stir in northwest Cork - we visit Ireland's only robotic beef farm.
What do you do when you have built up a successful global finance business? Start beef farming, naturally.
Frank Murphy is the businessman behind the foreign exchange company Monex based in Killarney in Co Kerry.
"Do you know when a website like Ryanair asks what currency you want to pay in? That's us doing the conversions," he explains.
The business has developed into a multi-million euro one, so Murphy was never going to be short of cash to indulge in his other interests in life, one of which happens to be farming.
But in fairness to the former Wexford native, his foray into beef is not without logic. He grew up on a large farm at the now famous Dunbrody House in southeast Wexford, where his dad was the farm manager.
When his wife, Teresa, inherited the family farm at Glen South just outside Banteer in north Cork in 2012, the entrepreneur knew he had a fresh opportunity on his hands.
"It was around the same time as Teresa was sick, which meant that I was around home more than normal. We don't live on the farm, so we were faced with the decision to either sell it or do something with it. But if we were doing something with it, it had to be on the basis that it was a viable business proposition - it still has to make money. We're not relying on any Single Farm Payment for a profit here," claims Murphy.
A complete refurbishment of the old farmyard ensued, with an spend of €1m, most of which went into the 260 by 100ft slatted shed that can house 600 cattle at a time.
