Tv focus on Tipp farmer Thomas

Tipperary farmer Thomas Moloney will feature in the second episode of UTV Ireland’s highly successful fly-on-the-wall rural series, ‘Rare Breed: A Farming Year’, on Monday, January 18 at 8pm.

Rare Breed provides an in-depth look into the successes and struggles of farming life in Ireland, throughout a calendar year.

A total of 18 farming families from across the country are taking part in the series, which gives a unique insight into all aspects of farming life and the people who work our land – from beef, dairy, sheep, pig and poultry farms, to tomato and organic vegetable producers.

Thomas is an agricultural contractor who hails from Clogheen.

Moloney Agri Limited is a family run venture that has been in business for 40 years, and are winners of the 2014 and 2015 Irish Contractor of the Year award. Next week’s episode will see Thomas facing into the month of February with a trip to Wexford on a job cutting hedges.
