ORIGIN OF COMPANY
Where it all began
Founder and CEO, Paul McCourt, is a keen historian, so it puzzled him why hemp – the essential crop so
prized for its ability to provide food, shelter and clothing – disappeared from modern agriculture
Impressed by the power of hemp and surrounded by the bleaching fields of nearby Bellurgen Park and
its rich-flax growing tradition, Paul knew the Cooley Peninsula was the ideal growing soil for hemp. So
in 2011 he set about growing this ancient grain in Ireland for the first time since the mid-1700.
Celtic Wind Crops is launched
The Irish-Owned company was set up in 2012 to capitalise on the growing demand for ancient crops and grains – and create a sustainable future for people and the planet with hemp.
Under the Celtic Wind brand, we create a unique product range of CBD oils, capsules, powders and skincare range using no herbicides, pesticides or fungicides. Just 100% natural Irish grown hemp that’s safe, independently tested and analysed, and fully compliant.
We manage and control our entire supply chain – from seed to shelf. It’s how we ensure full traceability for consumers and trade.
Leading the way
We’ve pioneered new technologies that harness the natural power of hemp to feed, clothe, shelter and nourish the world. We’re always innovating and inspiring new products that drive the Irish hemp industry forward so we can share the benefits of hemp far and wide.
