Alan Moran is a “Hill Sheep” farmer and new generation sheepdog trainer from Newport, Co. Mayo. He grew up around sheepdogs and trained his first dog at 11 years of age.
Alan will demonstrate skills and methods of working a sheepdog which have been handed down from his ancestors.
He will explain why shepherds in this region could not manage to farm these vast mountains withoout the help and trust of his dogs.
The demonstrations are held 3km from Newport on the Achill Road and the exhibition is signposted on the Wild Atlantic Way (N59). There is ample parking for cars & buses.
The demonstration is also signposted on the very popular Greenway, which runs adjacent to the exhibition centre, and offers an enjoyable and interesting activity on a family day out.
