8 NOVEMBER 2017

ICSA president Patrick Kent has described last evening’s meeting with An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar as, “A very useful exchange on the pressing issues currently affecting Irish agriculture including Brexit, Mercosur, CAP funding and climate change.” The meeting was also attended by Michael Creed TD, Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine and Andrew Doyle TD, Minister of State for Food, Forestry & Horticulture and had inputs from ICMSA, IFA and Macra na Feirme.

Mr Kent thanked Mr Varadkar and the Ministers present for the frank exchange and said, “Both short term and longer term strategies are required to navigate the key issues pertaining to the Irish agriculture and food sectors. This requires vision and strong leadership and I look forward to engaging further with the Taoiseach and Ministers Creed and Doyle going forward.”
