On the last day of Big Week on the Farm, special guest Ireland and Leinster star Sean O’Brien joins Ella McSweeney and Áine Lawlor, on the O’Sullivan family farm in Co. Waterford.
Gillian goes in search of local otters; the team follow the bloody and confrontational secret life of the rooster, visit a farm on top of a school building in the middle of the city and get to peek behind the gates of a very private residence. There is also a possibility that there may be a final bovine birth before the week is out!
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. Big Week on the Farm is co-funded with RTÉ by Science Foundation Ireland. Science and technology are increasingly part of modern farming and food production.
Join in as the drama unfolds for the final night - Episode 4, RTÉ One, April 11th, at 7 pm.
