The Irish Simmental Cattle Society has confirmed the appointment of Peadar Glennon to the position of general manager.
Glennon previously vacated a role as the society’s chief operations manager for a general managerial position with the Irish Angus Cattle Society, whose head office is based in Carrick-on-Shannon.
As reported by That’s Farming, Deirdre McGowan, a UCD/WIT graduate, who hails from near Mohill, Co. Leitrim, stepped into the position at the Irish Simmental Society’s Tullamore-based office on February 7th, 2022.
However, the society advertised the general managerial role in recent weeks and has officially confirmed the new appointment this week.
In a statement on Thursday, July 21st, 2022, a spokesperson for the society said:
“The Irish Simmental Cattle Society are delighted to announce the appointment of Peadar Glennon to the role of general manager and look forward to continued success under his stewardship.”
That’s Farming understands that Glennon began working with the society over two decades ago.
