The first debate for the candidates for the Ulster/Nth Leinster Regional Chair election will take place this evening.
Members of the Cavan IFA County Executive will hear from the two candidates – Frank Brady from the Aughnamullen branch in Monaghan and John Curran from the Kells branch in Meath – about their plans for the role.
IFA National Returning Officer Martin Stapleton said the debates will give county officers and branch delegates in each of the seven county executives in the region the opportunity to hear from the two candidates.
