One In A Billion Birth At Clare Farm

An incredibly unusual birth has taken place on a farm in North Clare.

Four identical heifer calves have been born on the farm of Ennistymon man Tom Clair.

The four quads – Mia, Rosie, Fluffy and Jenny – and their mother, a Charolais cross, are all in good health.


In 2004, when four identical heifer calves were born on a farm in Norfolk, England, geneticists calculated the odds as being a billion to one.
