As the IFA debates draw to a close, the main message I have received from members is that they are looking for a President who will communicate with them on an ongoing basis and represent their views at the highest level.

Meanwhile, I have been waiting for an IFA Presidential election hustings in Kerry to sell my ideas to farmers. I’m very disappointed that we will not be having a debate. Kerry farmers are entitled to the opportunity to question candidates. I’ll be in Kerry later this week.
