Bray People - - YOUR WEDDING -

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.’
