Three ‘Farm Viability and Competitiveness’ case studies carried out by the NRN team at NUI Galway, Dr Maura Farrell and Dr Shane Conway have been included in the Government of Ireland's Project Ireland 2040 report entitled ‘Strengthening Rural Economies and Communities’.

The NRN case studies included within this report detail a young trained farmer named Leo Morrissey’s successful farm transfer experience with his parents and older brother in Co. Galway, another about farm diversification on the Mulhall’s Coolanowle Country House and Organic Farm, situated along the Carlow and Laois border, and finally a case study on Glen Keen Farm and Visitor Centre in Co. Mayo.

This publication, prepared by the DAFM and DRCD, was launched at the Government of Ireland's 'Creating Stronger Rural Economies and Communities' Project Ireland 2040 event held in Westport, Co. Mayo on the 13th of July 2018.
