Mayo farmer to establish new organisation to represent “serious issues facing the people of Ireland”

Former Mayo Chair of INHFA and local election candidate Gerry Loftus is set to establish Ireland's Future - a new organisation to represent “serious issues facing the people of Ireland”, That’s Farming can reveal.

Loftus said that an official launch will take place at a later date.

“Ireland’s Future will act as an umbrella organisation to a number of committees that will operate within it and already talks have already taken place with a number of different groups.” Loftus outlined.

Mart Managers

He explained that a number of meetings have taken place with mart managers as “they are a critical part of rural communities.”

“On Tuesday night in The Sligo Park Hotel, they were the first to set up under the new organisation calling themselves Mart Managers of Ireland.”

Eimear McGuinness – Donegal Mart Manager - was elected chair of the committee; other committees will follow including health and education.

“The intention is to bring as many people together as possible under their relevant headings if we are going to save our way of life,” Loftus concluded.

The Mayo farmer confirmed that public meetings will commence in the near future.
