Top Wexford hurler Lee Chin will join Ella McSweeney and Áine Lawlor as they host day three of Big Week on the Farm, live from O’Sullivan’s farm in Waterford, where they will be eavesdropping on the plentiful wildlife that lives in local woodland.

Big Week on the Farm will be analysing the secret life of the calf and experiencing the challenges and difficulties of farming life on a farm on a small island. As part of this episode, the team will check the Waterford soil to assess the dangers of soil Farmageddon and yet another big question remains - will one of Gillian’s in-calf heifers give birth while the show is on air?

Family Farm

Gillian and Neil and their children Fionn (6), Hannah (4) and Tim (2), are the host farmers this year. The family have been farming for generations and Gillian’s father and mother Marianne and Michael Wall are still heavily involved in the farm.

Each night, on Big Week on the Farm, Ella, Áine and celebrity guests will present live studio demos, discussions, dissections, hatchings and births. Location presenters Darragh McCullough and Helen Carroll will be broadcasting live from ten different farms across the country; two different farms a night! Join in as the drama unfolds every night, April 9th-13th, from 7 pm on RTÉ One. Tune in tonight for Episode 1, RTÉ One, April 9th at 7 pm. Episode 3, RTÉ One, April 11th at 7pm.
