The Shorthorn Society has paid tribute to the late John Joe Conway of the Knockaneadan herd in Kilfenora, Co. Clare.
The well-respected breeder was the recipient of the Shorthorn Hall of Fame award in 2012 in recognition of a lifetime dedicated to breeding Shorthorn cattle.
In a statement, Irish Shorthorn Society said: “Such a wonderful person, always cheerful and kind. He was so passionate about nature and his beloved Shorthorn cattle that he adored.”
