Following the easing of Covid-19 restrictions, it has been possible to organise 3 consecutive open days at the Teagasc Moorepark facility in Kilworth (Tuesday, 14th Sept; Wednesday, 15th Sept and Thursday, 16th Sept).
Admission is free, but attendees must register at www.teagasc.ie/moorepark21 and produce their EU Covid-19 certificates on the day.
