Welcome to the official website for Irish Suffolk Sheep breeders. Irish Suffolks have been leading contributors to the sheep industry in Ireland for over 125 years. 


Suffolk is the flag-ship domestic breed and is recognised as the leading terminal sire on a variety of commercial ewes to produce top quality prime lamb. The breed has been in existence since the late 1700s.


Sheep Ireland is the South of Ireland Branch Suffolk Sheep Society’s pedigree software solution for managing and maintaining the pedigree Irish Flock Book.

Several helpful flock management reports for your flock are also available. There is a HELP button at the top of most pages with instructions and guidance on how the page works.
