Eoin's already reaping benefits of changing outdated drain system

Eoin Toohey, from Moneygall, Co Offaly, bought just over 20 ac in 2008, that had previously been rented out for over 20 years. The land had received little or no investment in that time, and the remnants of a drainage system were over 30 years old.

The land repeatedly flooded and was often waterlogged, even though he had made a few attempts at draining the land by putting in a long open drain. This was only a partial success, and after failing to successfully utilise this land in 2012, Eoin decided to drain it properly.
