6 more farmer picket lines stand down

Dawn Charleville, Dawn Grannagh, Dawn Ballyhaunis and Kepak Watergrasshill stood down their protest yesterday evening (Friday, September 21st).

Clones indicated that they are preparing to stand down over the weekend; the protesters also left ABP Cahir.

In a statement, the Independent Farmers of Ireland said: “When this group is added to Slane, ABP Ferrybank, Slaney, Nenagh, Rathkeale and Roscrea, it is quite clear that the majority of the protesters have decided that the proposal agreed last Sunday provides the best blueprint for the future.”

“While the proposal is not ideal, it is clear that the majority of people feel it can provide a solid foundation for the future.”

“The Independent Farmers of Ireland wish to thank all the brave men and women who walked these protests and who made the difficult decision to stand down tonight.”

“They started this process for the greater good and clearly tonight they followed the same course.”

The group said that it hopes that, over the weekend, other protests will decide to “follow the same course of action and perhaps, next week we will all be able to return our farms with a hopeful view to the future”.
