Developing Rural Ireland: A History of the Irish Agricultural Advisory Services
Rural Ireland and its agricultural way of life are emblematic of this country. For most of modern history, however, rural Ireland and Irish agriculture were comparatively underdeveloped. This changed dramatically in the twentieth century, during which they were transformed.Many people and organisations contributed to this, but chief among these were the Irish agricultural advisory services. First established in the early 1900s, they are today operated as a public service by Teagasc, Ireland’s Agriculture and Food Development Authority.
