The future direction and outlook for the Irish agricultural sector will be discussed by a number of key speakers on Monday, January 22 at a seminar organised by AIB in Fermoy.

Chaired by Eoin Lowry, Business Editor with the Irish Farmers Journal, speakers on the night will include Minister for Agriculture, Food & the Marine Michael Creed; Joe Healy, President IFA; Jim Woulfe, CEO Dairygold and Tadhg Buckley, AIB Agri Advisor.

Speaking in advance of the free seminar, AIB’s Agri Advisor, Tadhg Buckley, said: “There was a welcome recovery in output prices across many sectors in 2017, which helped support more positive incomes on many farms. Unfortunately however, market sentiment has softened somewhat in certain sectors, which when combined with the uncertainty surrounding Brexit and CAP Reform, is making it more difficult for farmers to plan ahead and best position their farms for the future.”

The seminar is taking place in Corrin Mart, Fermoy on Monday, January 22, starting at 7.30pm. Further details and information is available from Shane McCarthy at 086-0081317.
