Gerard Brickley's career spans almost 30 years working in International Markets with Bord Bia, and formerly CBF, promoting Irish beef and livestock.
Now a full-time farmer, he represents the Pedigree Beef Herd Books on the Board of ICBF. He is also a board member of the National Co-Op of Farm Relief Services, and Internationally, is a member of the European Simmental Beef Breeds Committee.
In addition, together with his wife, Angela, their Celtic Herd is regarded as one of the top Simmental and Charolais herds in the country. In recent years they have developed a small but select stud of AI bulls, supplying semen to pedigree breeders in Ireland, the UK and into Continental Europe.
