About Out the Gap

My name is Noel Clancy. I'm a sheep and beef farmer based in South County Tipperary in Ireland. I recently started a podcast called, 'Out the Gap'. The content is rural issues and Ag stories recorded live on site and in person with people in their own environment rather than over an Internet call or video link. An episode will be released every 3 weeks. I released the first episode, 'Omega beef in the Knockmealdowns' in March but then had to postpone the recording of the second episode until June due to Covid 19 movement restrictions. The second and most recent episode is focused on the wool trail and wool export trade and is entitled, 'Long blows and the science of wool'. Hopefully the Podcast format might suit, 'Eatfarmnow'. It's available through most platforms. Twitter handle; @OuttheGapPodca1 My own main Twitter handle is @nbclancy I also run and organise the @IrelandsFarmers Twitter account which has a large following. Kind regards, Noel 00353 877856872
