Farming Independent - The real story behind rural crime

In this week’s new look Farming Independent, we take an in-depth look at the state of our rural water network, as Paul Melia finds supplies to more than 20,000 rural households across the country pose a health risk.


  • With prices on the floor at the moment, we talk to tax expert Martin O’Sullivan who gives practical advice on how to manage farm debt.
  • We also look at the prospects for young farmers getting a foot in the parlour with share milking.


  • In our Rural Life page, farmers Tommy and Adam Cooke talk about their wind farm project on their farm nestled in the Slieveardagh hills on the Kilkenny/Tipperary border, and the new farm partnership between father and son.
