County Chairs

The County Chair is the key IFA leader in your county, and represents farmers in their county on IFA’s governing body, National Council.

Your local County Chairs are listed below. They are fully accessible to you, and they want to hear from you if you’d like to get more involved at branch or county level, if you’re interested in sitting on a committee, or if you just want to give your view.

If you are interested in taking on a leadership role yourself, contact futureleaders@ifa.ie – we would love to hear from you!
