Government intent on penalising agricultural sector at every turn

Reacting to comments made by the Taoiseach, Micheal Martin, and the Minister for Agriculture, Charlie McConalogue, at the Irish Farmers’ Association’s  AGM, The Roscommon East Galway TD says “Fianna Fail now seem to be greener than Eamon Ryan and the Green Party, only Micheal Martin is not cycling around on a bike.


The rural TD says it seems Fianna Fail is intent on using the climate change agenda as a stick to beat farmers with moving forward.
