The launch of Galway 2020’s Project Baa Baa was held at Teagasc Sheep 2018: Farm to Fork on Saturday 7 July.

Celebrating the themes of craft, food and tourism, the aim of the day was to highlight the cultural, economic and environmental contribution of sheep and sheep farming.

Education is a large focus of Project Baa Baa –  the ‘Kids Space’ at the launch housed interactive maps, a colouring wall and information on the animal lifecycle, nutrition and the environment. The Project Baa Baa Primary Schools Sheep Project was also launched on the day.

On display was a selection of European sheep cheese, cured and smoked meats, as well as numerous wool products from fashion to homewares.

There were also demonstrations of sheep dog trials, shearing, weaving, spinning and dying of wool, in addition to weaving and cooking demonstrations.

The aim of Project Baa Baa is to develop a lasting legacy and to encourage the maintenance and development of sheep-related businesses throughout Europe. In 2020, Project Baa Baa will host a major sheep congress, in addition to numerous events planned throughout the year.
