Shillelagh farmer in Brussels
A YOUNG Wicklow Macra na Feirme member represented his county recently at an EU wide young farmers conference in Brussels.
Eric Driver from Shillelagh was one of the delegates who attended following an invitation from Mairead McGuinness MEP.
The EPP Young Farmers Congress brought the agricultural youth of Europe together during the two-day event held in the European Parliament.
‘I was delighted that we could be joined by such an engaging group of Macra na Feirme members at the congress today,’ said McGuiness, ‘ it is really important that European policymakers listen to the views of our youngest farmers as we continue to shape EU policies that will directly impact on how they farm in future.’
