ELEANOR O’NEILL (Gisburn Auction)

Having accepted the position as auctioneer and head of dairy at Gisburn mart in March 2022, I have enjoyed the rollercoaster of learning and opportunities.

I have had the most fantastic year in Gisburn’s dairy shippons, smashing records numerous times and weekly sales provide such variety, which is both a challenge and a pleasure. Now on the rostrum, everything comes together; the people, the cows, my ‘eye’ and my knowledge, to push to achieve the best from each sale.

As a mum of two young girls, it is wonderful to be able to show them that hard work pays off.
