Australian Ambassador to Ireland visits Magners Farm Moyglass

Published 1 year ago 16th July 2021 by Joe Kenny

The Hon Gary Gray AO, the Australian Ambassador to Ireland paid a visit to Magners Farm, Moyglass, on Monday, July 5. Kylie Magner, co-owner of Magners Farm is a proud Australian along with her four Irish born Australian passport bearing children – Matilda, Tadhg, Imogen and Finn.

Mr Gray has been the Ambassador in Ireland since August 2020, however, has been unable to travel too far afield due to various lockdowns. Mr Gray was accompanied by his partner Pippa and their dog Ted from the Australian Embassy in Dublin.

Mr Gray’s family hail from Tipperary. They continue a 100-year farming tradition in Western Australia, having farmed their current acreage since the 1930s. “We were extremely honoured to host a visit to Mr Gray and his partner Pippa. Whilst feeling very much at home here in Tipperary, our roots are very firmly based in Australia.” said Kylie Magner.

Mr Gray was extremely gracious with his time, taking a very keen interest in the regenerative, organic practices we work at on the farm. He has such a great understanding of the importance of diversification in agriculture and the value of positive family farming. Both Mr Gray and Pippa were also particularly interested in the Ned Kelly – Moyglass connection.

After visiting the farm, Kylie and Billy Magner accompanied Mr Gray and his partner Pippa to visit Fethard Horse Country Experience before taking a tour of the medieval walls and lunch at Dooks.
