Reacting to today’s speech by UK Prime Minister Theresa May on Brexit, IFA President Joe Healy said he is extremely concerned by the direction the UK set out because it will make a hard border inevitable and would see the UK pursuing a cheap food policy in new trade deals with third countries that would damage Ireland’s farming and food sector.

Speaking from Brussels where he is attending a meeting of the European farm group COPA, IFA President Joe Healy said there is an increasing realisation among farm bodies across Europe of the potential damaging implications of a hard Brexit.
More than 600 farmers will pack into Goffs in Kildare tomorrow at the beginning of an important week for IFA’s Brexit campaign. EU Commissioner for Agriculture Phil Hogan will hear a clear message on the outcome needed from the negotiations for the farming and food sectors.
