My name is Ailish Moriarty and I’m a 2019 Nuffield scholar. I work as a milk quality manager for Kerry Agribusiness in south Kerry. I’m married to Paddy and we have two children. We run a dairy farm on the Dingle Peninsula in Annascaul. My passion is farming, particularly animal health.

For my Nuffield scholarship, I’ve chosen to investigate the role of milk surveillance schemes in the development of an effective herd health framework.
