Hands on: Colin Marry at his pig farm at Littlegrange, Co Louth

Colin Marry's 800-sow unit would be classified as an average-sized pig farm, but he's anything but an average farmer.

After studying commerce in NUIG, he spent two years teaching English in Asia, before returning to Ireland in 2007 and working on the family farm at Littlegrange near Drogheda in Co Louth.

He did an online masters in agricultural economics and a pig management course with Teagasc and started running the farm, which was split between him and his two brothers in 2015.
