100% Irish Beef – The Irish Farmers 2014 calendar in aid of BótharOctober 10, 2013
Irish Beef has never been tastier. For a charity calendar featuring Irish Farmers you would expect a bunch of strapping Irish lads messing around, enjoying the craic and otherwise enjoying the Emerald Isle. That’s exactly what we have here. A fun and light-hearted calendar featuring some great guys getting down to work for charity. Here’s the cover – Mister January is Gareth Alcorn from Kilkenny.
The calendar features some great artful photographs by photographer Fran Marshall. The proceeds from the calendar go to help Bóthar, an Irish charity which helps the developing world by sending farm animals where they are needed. They also help provide sustainable growth in communities with initiatives such as fishing projects. Currently 31 Bóthar calves are being raised by Loughan House prisoners in Ireland, and they will be donated to local families in Rusizi, Rwanda and help supply a creamery being developed there, when they are older.
The full cast are Colin O’Brien and Dan Kirby from Westmeath, John Wallace and Donagh Heffernan from Tipperary, Gareth Alcorn from Kilkenny, Gary and Jamie Laughlin, a father and son duo from Antrim, John Fanning from Wexford, Michael Naughton and Stephen Hamilton from Roscommon, and last but certainly not least Paddy O’Connor from Wexford.
*No animals were harmed in the making of this charity calendar.
