Leitrim Flowers on 'Ear to the Ground' this evening

Preview of tonight's programme featuring Carrick-on-Shannon business

A flower farm at Kilnagross, Carrick-on-Shannon will feature on tonight's episode of the popular agriculture programme 'Ear to the Ground (RTE One at 7pm).

Leitrim Flowers is a 12 acre farm owned by Ciarán and Kealin Beattie.

According to presenter Darragh McCullough the rushy meadows of Leitrim are probably the last place you would expect to find such a farm but their passion for nature inspired their idea of fresh native flowers as an alternative to roses which are flown halfway round the world.

See the attached clip which gives a taste of what tonight's episode contains.
