The Farmer’s Friend


Taoiseach Micheál Martin (Centre) and Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine Charlie McConalogue (right)  arrive at yesterday’s 67th Annual General Meeting of the Irish Farmers Association in the Mansion House  hosted by IFA President Tim Cullinan (left)


“We are a country that is coming from behind to be honest. We have done the talk on climate change but the milestones of achievement are not as impressive as the talk is.

Farming is not a soft target. You are not a soft target.

“We are at a crossroads for Irish farming and for forestry. Threats and opportunities abound but our choice now is to either honestly address the challenge that climate change poses for the sector, and together harness the opportunities that this changing context presents. Or, as some voices counsel, to resist what I see is quickly becoming irresistible.”

Taoiseach at the IFA annual conference yesterday.
