This weekend sees two big nights at the Wallis Arms Hotel: on Friday night there’s a 70s Disco organised in conjunction with Trevor O’Connor who is running the Berlin Marathon, with all proceeds going to the Irish Heart Foundation. On Saturday evening, you can dance the night away as Crystal Swing will take to the stage, fresh from Dervla’s wedding last week (she’s not on honeymoon until November).
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.
