“I’m backing Francie Gorman to be next President of the IFA. Francie has shown wonderful leadership in his current role as South Leinster Chair and previously in his role as Laois County Chair. He has a deep knowledge and understanding of all sectors of Irish agriculture, he is not afraid to call out something if it’s wrong and, more importantly, he understands the importance of the family farm as the backbone of Irish agriculture and the rural economy.”
