Jim O’Brien’s weekly column in the Farming Independent can be inspired by anything from a badly hung gate, to a word from a neighbour, a line from a book, the smell of a tractor engine, the bark of a dog or the hum of a milking machine.
Living in the west of Ireland, Jim captures the broad sweep of local and national affairs, while keeping an eye on the past and imagining the future. He reflects on his own life and the world we live in with great humour, insight and clarity.
