We are delighted to announce the launch of Hassall Brothers Ireland and the appointment of Ciarán Clancey as Business Manager, Ireland.
Having established the UK division of Hassall Brothers in 2016, our expansion into Ireland (our first market outside of the UK), builds on our recent success in the Irish market and growing demand from our UK clients for high-quality Irish cattle.
Hassall Brothers Ireland will provide our UK clients with improved access to high-quality Autumn and Spring profile Irish Friesian and beef cattle. Irish clients will benefit from our convenient and cost-effective solution to buying and selling dairy and beef livestock, to both fellow farmers in Ireland as well our already captive UK market.
The Ireland team will be led by Business Manager, Ciarán Clancey who brings over 10-years of professional agri-business, livestock trading and agri-environmental experience to the role. Beyond his professional work in agriculture, Ciarán is a passionate farmer and breeder of high-quality cattle. He is highly regarded in Irish agricultural circles for his keen eye for quality livestock and machinery.
Once the Ireland team is fully established, we will be introducing our very popular online auction proposition to this entirely new audience.
Commenting on the launch of Hassall Brothers Ireland and Ciarán’s appointment, Dan Hassall, Manging Director, Hassall Brothers said: “We are extremely excited about our expansion into Ireland after sustained interest and demand from our clients to establish a greater presence in this market. Ciarán is ideally suited to lead our business in Ireland and will bring the highest level of knowledge and professionalism to the task. We are delighted to welcome Ciarán to our team and look forward to making accelerated progress in the Irish market, while significantly benefiting our UK operation and clients.”
