Ferris congratulates new IFA president

17 December, 2013 - by Martin Ferris TD

Sinn Féin spokesperson on Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Martin Ferris TD, has congratulated the newly elected president of the Irish Farmers’ Association, Eddie Downey.

Deputy Ferris said:

“I wish Eddie Downey the very best in his new leadership role for Irish farmers.

“His objective to reform the Common Agricultural Policy is one which I share, as a more equitable distribution of payments is in the interests of the less-well-off Irish farmer.

“Despite the healthy rivalry between Meath and Kerry, I hope his term of office is successful and I hope to meet him soon to congratulate him personally.”
