Glenshane Country Farm

At the foothills of the spectacular Sperrin Mountains, marvel at the natural expanse of ancient lands once roamed by St. Patrick as he shepherded his flock 1,500 years ago. Meet fourth generation shepherd, sheep farmer and shearer Jamese McCloy as he demonstrates the centuries-old skill of herding sheep.

In the beautiful surroundings of Mid Ulster, prepare to be amazed at the skill and commitment of these talented working dogs in a highly entertaining sheepdog demonstration. Feel the connection between Jamese and these beautiful border collies as they bring the flock into the pen while he gestures, whistles and uses verbal commands.

A natural storyteller, Jamese shares insights into farming life and his personal family history. Watch Jamese shear a sheep and learn about other old methods passed down from his grandfather.
