Glanbia Ireland Changes Its Name

Glanbia Ireland has announced that it has a new name.


According to a statement published on, Glanbia Ireland is now known as Tirlán.

The statement explained that the new identity was created to reflect the characteristics of the company's business.

The new name is combination of the Irish words "tír" and "lán", which translate as "land" and "full", respectively, with Tirlán standing for "land of abundance" and representing the connection and relationship between the co-op, its people and the land that they farm and sustain, according to the statement published on, which added that the renamed business's symbol is inspired by the letter "úr" or "ur" from the ancient Ogham alphabet, which was an early Medieval alphabet that was used to write the early Irish language, with the letter meaning "earth, soil, clay".

"Here For Good"

The statement published on concluded by saying "We're Tirlán, and we're here for good."
