Woodtown Jerseys

The Tyrrell family have been farming at Woodtown Abbott in Kildalkey since 1917, and it is currently run by Ben and Richard Tyrrell, who are the third and fourth generations to be farming here. The Jersey herd was established by Ben’s grandfather, Garrett Tyrrell who imported 30 cattle from Jersey Island between 1955 and 1957 to set up the herd.

The Woodtown Jersey herd is currently the oldest and largest herd of pedigree Jersey cows in the Republic of Ireland, so a wealth of knowledge and experience has been built up over the years about the Jersey breed. Woodtown Jerseys have won many prizes over the years with many champions being shown at the Spring Show, Tullamore Show and Mill Street.
