At 22 years of age, Richard O’Beirne gave up an intercounty football career to concentrate on farming. It brought him from Strokestown to Kilconly near Tuam in 1989. Not that there is anything wrong with his home place in Roscommon, but he decided to make a fresh start and give his whole attention to farming.

I was farming a fragmented farm. In fact, I was a ‘townie’, my father was in the livestock business buying and selling calves from the south. My wife is from Connemara, and we couldn’t see a future in Strokestown. My parents stayed and I moved.”
