06 October 2022
Fianna Fáil TD for Cork North West, Aindrias Moynihan, has welcomed news that Ireland’s Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) Strategic Plan worth almost €10 billion has been approved.
Deputy Moynihan commented, "It will deliver some €9.8bn to our farm families over the next five years to support them to continue to produce world-class, safe and sustainable food as well as supporting them in their important work of meeting our climate ambitions.
“Fianna Fáil has always understood the need for supporting our farm families through the CAP. This plan will provide vital support to farmers and rural communities. It aims to meet the twin objectives of ensuring the continued viability of family farms and maximising the environmental and social sustainability of the sector.
“I want to commend my party colleague Minister Charlie McConalogue and my colleagues in Government for all the work they have done over the past few years in putting together this well-funded and considered plan.”
