At the Annual Meeting of the Royal Ulster Agricultural Society (RUAS), held online on Friday 26th March, the prestigious President’s Plate was awarded to Council member Libby Clarke.
The award recognizes excellence within the agri-sector in Northern Ireland and acknowledges a member who has made a significant contribution to the Society over a period of years.
This year Libby Clarke from Magheralin, Co. Armagh was the very worthy recipient. This RUAS stalwart became a life member as a child and first joined the Council in 2006, following in her father’s footsteps, who had a lifetime involvement with the Society.
Libby has been involved in many different aspects of the Society, serving on several committees and fulfilling many roles, including Judge, Steward and Council member. She is currently Chair of the Cattle Committee and the Beef & Lamb Sub Committee and also sits on the Finance Committee.
Outside of the Society, Libby runs a successful estate agency business and farm and has two teenage daughters.
