Founder of Ireland’s Future, Gerry Loftus, has said he is furious at the announcement by Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine Michael Creed, to put internal convergence on hold for the transitional period of the Common Agricultural Policy.

The North Mayo man says this is a sickening despicable attack on the poorest sector of Irish Agriculture.

Mr Loftus say fifteen years after the introduction of CAP, we still have a situation where 53,000 farmers have a payment of €6,000 or less, another 30,000 farmers are on €10,000 or less and the Agriculture Minister decides that these farmers on the lowest payments are the farmers he should target.
