Congratulations to Orla Hayes from Kanturk Co Cork who is the 2019 winner of the €2,000 Tama Ireland College Bursary. The bursary is awarded annually to a student registered in an Agri related 3rd level college course
Orla is currently in her 2nd year studying a level 8 Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Science – TL848 in Tralee IT.
“I choose this course because I did agricultural science for my leaving cert and I really enjoyed it. I always had a passion for agriculture coming from a farming background that specialises in beef and agricultural contracting. My father mainly does round baling with his fusion bale but also does some other contracting too. I did most of the raking for him over the summer and weekends. Being involved in the farm at home and in the contracting business I realise how important good netting and plastic is for preserving the bales properly and for the baler to run smoothly”.
