Teresa Roche from Co Galway has been elected chair of the IFA Farm Family & Social Affairs Committee.
She succeeds Alice Doyle, who was elected IFA Deputy President last month.
Both will take up office next Tuesday at the 69th AGM of the Association.
Teresa Roche said she looked forward to working with the Committee and thanked Alice Doyle for her work and commitment in the role.
“We will have a very busy agenda with the range of issues that we cover. Initially, my focus will be on services for mental health; pensions for farm families; and encouraging greater involvement of women in farming,” she concluded.
