This year has seen some major developments for farmers, farm families and farming communities. The ending of Milk Quotas and the opening of the USA market for beef has the potential to offer real gains for rural Ireland.
I’d like to invite you, your family, friends and neighbours to meet our Minister for Agriculture, Simon Coveney in The Wallis Arms Hotel. Come along, have your say and hear his thoughts on the future of the family farm and the agriculture sector. I hope you can take the time and join us on the night.
What: Public Meeting on Farming’s Future
Where: Wallis Arms Hotel, Millstreet
When: 8pm Thursday 30th April 2015
Who: Minister Simon Coveney TD & Áine Collins TD
I look forward to seeing you!
