At the end of a college lecture, some moons ago, our handsome lecturer asked if there were any questions, I whispered ‘Would you marry a girl in wellies?’ and a friend burst into laughter because a). I was as city a girl as they come and b). my friend was a farmer’s daughter and knew what a life in wellies meant to a girl!
Now, I’m married to a lovely and more importantly understanding Dairy Farmer in North Kerry, Ireland. We are blessed with three beautiful sons. Originally from Cork city, I didn’t meet a cow until I moved to Hearthill and began my life as a farmer’s wife.
Let me tell you a little bit about our life in wellies…
