IFA to hold “Save Irish Farming” rallies at 4 locations tomorrow

The Irish Farmers Association has organised 4 emergency rallies tomorrow in a bid to “save Irish farming”. According to the Association, current government policies will decimate Irish farming. The IFA believes that the Government is not entering negotiations with farming groups in good faith, and argues that the current policy trajectory will leave Irish agriculture unrecognisable within a few years.

The 4 rallies, which will take place in Cavan, Roscommon, Portlaoise and Cork tomorrow, will be led by IFA president, Tim Cullinane. Quoted in the Farmer’s Journal this week, Mr Cullinane said that the Government has treated the agri sector as “low-hanging fruit that it can target with impunity”. He also criticised the Government’s policy of importing fuels from abroad, while discontinuing Irish fuel production. The starting times for all 4 rallies are listed below.
