Meitheal is an Irish term which describes how neighbours and friends would come together to assist in the harvesting of crops or other tasks at busy times. The extra support at these times coupled with a variety of skills and tools made the job of harvesting more efficient for the farm.
Strong and close relationships, built on trust, sharing of tools and capabilities and knowledge sharing between neighbours and friends was and is at the very heart of the success of Meitheal.
