Grazing Cattle in Iveragh Uplands along the Ring of Kerry, Ireland

The Iveragh Peninsula is Ireland’s largest and best known among day-trippers who drive along the Ring of Kerry. The Iveragh Uplands is also home to people who love farming on the rugged landscape between the mountains and coastline, a tradition began millenniums ago. The most common livestock grazing among the grasses are the Scottish Blackface sheep and the Kerry cow. These small farms don’t rely on fertilizers and big equipment. Instead they follow agricultural practices handed down through the generations. These traditions are rapidly declining. The peninsula’s population has fallen over 35% in the last 100 years.
