The Irish Farmers Journal is reporting this morning that the Beef Plan Movement is in turmoil, with its national committee at war with its founders Hugh Doyle and Eamon Corley over financial and governance issues.
Members of the national committee and a county committee have said they have “grave issues and concerns surrounding transparency in the organisation including membership numbers”.
The committee has called for an independently audited set of accounts to be made available to it immediately.
A power struggle has seen county committees take votes of no confidence in Doyle and Corley including Westmeath, Offaly, Laois, Kerry, Sligo, Monaghan and Donegal.
County elections in many counties won’t be held before an extraordinary general meeting takes place on 26 January.
