Mixed reaction to CAP deal from local farmers

The Irish Farmers Association says thousands of farmers may have to quit the sector due to the new CAP plan.


It’s after the cabinet yesterday agreed to submit Ireland’s draft Strategic Plan to the European Commission.


The IFA claims many farmers will suffer devastating cuts to their payments when it comes into effect in 2023.



The Donegal chairperson of the IFA Brendan McLoughlin says the deal will have consequences for North West farmers.



Meanwhile the Sligo Chairperson of the IFA Kathleen Henry says there will be winners and losers in the local counties when the deal come into play.
