The "true gentleman with a heart of gold" was employed by Teagasc and was involved in Macra na Feirme.

Tributes have poured in for Art Mc Grath, Letterkenny, Co. Donegal who died suddenly on August, 11th 2018.

The well-known agricultural figure was employed by Teagasc as an Education Officer and assisted with the establishment and development of several Macra na Feirme clubs throughout Donegal and the entire country.

In a post on its Facebook page, Inishowen Macra paid tribute to the “true gentleman”:

“It is with great sadness that we hear of the untimely passing of Art Mc Grath. Art played a major role in the lives of many young farmers throughout Donegal over the years and played a vital role in the setting up of many macra clubs and events throughout the county.”

“Art always put all his efforts into both the personal and agricultural development of everyone he met both in and out of the Teagasc education centres and had a great means of connecting with everyone he met.”

Proper JobMacra also acknowledged the passing of the “true gentleman, with a heart of gold.”

“Without his kind encouragement and determination, our club would not exist today, as with many of the Macra clubs throughout Donegal.”
