Magys' farm co-founder Maggie Doyle beautifully articulates her experiences, both past and present for the Irish Times.

The article details the cyclicism of nature and life, of how the appearance of a simple starling in her letter box during the dark days of the opening of the Covid-19 pandemic could hark back to memories of her childhood, and mirror her formative experiences.

'“Please come back someday – we’re building a new home here too.”

“Look for me in spring trees!” I thought I heard her say and I wrote it down in a little notebook so I wouldn’t forget the message."'
