Major IFA Rally ‘to protect ANCs’

IFA is organising a major rally in the Bush Hotel, Carrick-on-Shannon on Friday, 2nd of December at 8 pm to highlight the importance of Areas of Natural Constraint (ANCs) payments and to improve payments and protect areas in the upcoming 2017 Review of ANCs.

  IFA Connacht Regional Chairman Padraic Joyce said that it is vitally important that farmers attend this meeting as the scheme is up for review as part of an EU-wide plan to designate areas based on physical handicaps.

  Farmers are being invited from all the Connacht counties and the north-west and border areas. All MEPs for the region are being invited.
