I did Leaving certificate in last recession of the 80s, resisted emigration and started www.johndalyfoods.com importing fresh food and wholesaling to retail trade. It was a difficult business but we grew it to a nation wide service employing 80 people with a turn over of 14m. I sold it in 2006 and was shocked at effects of retirement on a 42 year old. I went into education and did a higher diploma and honors degree in business and currently completing an MBA. In 2009 i started www.irelandfood.ie selling chickens and milk to retailers in the west of Ireland.The company employs 12 and is profitable but has no debt.
