Independent Farmers of Ireland

Meanwhile, Independent Farmers of Ireland has said that it will continue its “peaceful protest for as long as needed” or until such a time that its three elected representatives are allowed to negotiate on its behalf in order to "ensure the survival of a beef production system which has one of the lowest carbon footprints in the world”.

It held a meeting last night and elected three people who will “speak and negotiate on behalf of all peacefully protesting independent farmers of Ireland at any talks or discussions relating to the current beef crisis that out industry is undergoing”.

“Although there is no spokesperson, the Independent Farmers of Ireland now have 3 spokespeople who are available and willing to enter talks with Minister Creed should he wish.

The group is calling on Minister Creed to call for talks to begin in order to allow the group to “safeguard rural Ireland”.

“We ask that he supports sustainable Irish family farms NOT factory farms.”
