IFA rally to take place in Westmeath for nationwide Day of Action
The Irish Farmers Association has announced the list of county towns for the nationwide Day of Action taking place tomorrow, 11 June.
Farmers in each of the 29 County Executives will hold a rally at 11am to highlight the importance of the farming and agri-food sector to the rural economy.
In Westmeath, Mullingar has been selected as the town where the rally will take place.
IFA President Tim Cullinan said critical decisions are imminent which will have far-reaching implications for the sector:
“The shape of the next CAP and the Climate Action Bill will have significant repercussions for farming. We need policies that support commercial farming into the future,” he said.
Other towns across the country where rallies will take place include Tullamore in Offaly, Portlaoise in Laois and Castlerea in Roscommon.
