Tirlán Chairman John Murphy said: "The support network plays a crucial role in assisting farm families following life-changing illnesses or accidents. We hope that our contribution will assist the charity in their important work. Throughout our co-operative, we have a strong emphasis on workplace safety on our farms and in our 11 production facilities."
Norma Rohan, founder of Embrace FARM, said the donation will be a strong support in delivering much needed services across the country.
Tirlán is a world-class food and nutrition co-operative, with a diverse portfolio of quality ingredients, leading consumer and agri brands. The donation was made at the National Ploughing Championships where there was a strong emphasis on farm safety throughout the three-day event.
Across the three days, thousands of visitors also availed of an opportunity to meet a series of famous sports stars, including Ireland rugby International and Tirlán Ambassador, Tadhg Furlong and listen to technical seminars from the team or talk to the Tirlán Co-op Shares office staff. Many suppliers took the opportunity to sign-up for the Sustainability Action Payment.
