IFA REACTION TO GOVT ANNOUNCEMENT ON COVID-19COVID-19
IFA President Tim Cullinan has said a collective effort will be needed to deal with the challenge of COVID-19.
“We support the measures and the agricultural community will play its part, as it always has, with others to keep the supply chain operating,” he said.
In line with the Government announcement, IFA will suspend all meetings at branch, county and national level until March 29th.
IFA will develop arrangements to keep our offices open while factoring in the advice given by the HSE on social distancing and the challenges posed by the closure of schools, colleges and childcare facilities.
We will continue to be guided by the advice from the public health authorities. Details are available on www.hse.ie.
