Supports for the Farming Community

Today in the Dáil, I highlighted the need for supports for the farming community with the Minister for Agriculture.
As we know, we have had a pretty brutal winter and there has been almost constant rain for the past six to seven months. A lot of supports are required to help our farming community through this difficult patch because it has really disrupted the normal farm routine.
I also highlighted the need to introduce specific measures to reduce the burden of administration on our farmers to make life easier for them so they can focus on the job they are supposed to be doing.
