Michael has been an invaluable part of the Connolly's RED MILLS team for two decades. Before taking up his current role, he was our Purchasing Manager and assumed overall responsibility for purchase of all our raw material for our milling operations.
With a Diploma in Agricultural Science, Michael has been a key figure behind our seed production programme and the progression of our seed department.
Before joining us in 1995, he worked in the Seed and Hardware Department of IAWS for twelve years and was highly involved in a critical period of consolidation within the Iresh agri-business sector, which was very much led by IAWS.
Michael is a very well-known figure in our industry and has served as President of both the Irish Seed Trade Association and the Irish Grain and Feed Association in the past.
Career-wise, Michael is most passionate about building a sustainable agri-business for the long term, and is a huge advocate of working together in a professional manner for the benefit of Connolly's RED MILLS, our customers and the broader economy.
Outside of work, he is passionate about horses and has bred several top event horses.
