Flanagan meets with IFA officials on CAP

1st October 2012 - Charles Flanagan TD

Laois Offaly TD Charlie Flanagan met with local representatives from the IFA and reassured them that he has urged Minister Coveney to do all in his power to negotiate the best deal possible for Irish farmers during CAP reform negotiations.

“The recent announcement by the Kerry Group of 900 jobs in Kildare underlines the importance of the agri food sector to our economy. The recent demonstration by the farmers outside Leinster House indicates how passionate farmers are about growing their industry. These negotiations are of critical importance to the future sustainability of Irish farmers and the development of the agri food industry.”
“Having met local farmers during the protest in Dublin, I am acutely aware of the current issues and I will continue to liaise with Minister Coveney to ensure that the best possible outcome is achieved. “
