Dr Shane Conway, Researcher in the Discipline of Geography's Rural Studies Unit featured in a recent episode of RTÉ’s Ear to the Ground, where he discussed the importance of part-time farming, not only to the survival, continuity and future prosperity of the Irish agri-food industry, but also to the broader sustainability, viability and vibrancy of rural society, by incentivizing such farmers and their families to live and work in their local community.  You can view a clip of Shane discussing the intrinsic link between farming and rural sustainability here.  The full version of this particular episode of Ear to the Ground can be found on the  RTÉ Player (Season 27, Episode 11).
