The Irish Goat Hub

On this page I hope to bring you links to all websites associated with the goat industry in Ireland.  Societies, breeders, cheesemakers, specialist butchers, everything you might be looking for with relation to goats in this country.  What's listed below is just a start so if you know of something that isn't here then feel free to contact me and I'll update it immediately.
