Patrick Byrne

Business Consultancy & Advisory Ltd & The Agile Executive
Consultant & Programmes Manager

Pat is an accountant and business consultant. His involvement in the wool sector commenced with his role as an Udarás mentor with Comharchumann Uan Chiarraí Teo, a CoOp servicing sheep farmers in Kerry and Cork Gaeltachts and handling 400k kg of wool per annum.

His first wool research project, with technical research conducted by MTU/Shannon ABC, was a preliminary review of alternative wool scouring solutions on the island of Ireland to ensure traceability and reduce carbon footprint – environmentally friendly and modest throughput.

He then assembled and led the consortium that completed the Wool Markets Study for DAFM in 2022 and is now facilitating stakeholders in establishing the mooted Irish Grown Wool Council and Research Hub.
