PHOTOS: Farmers take to Dublin to oppose possible EU cuts

The Irish Farmers’ Association says possible cuts to the EU budget could have a material impact on CAP funding.

BETWEEN 10,000 and 15,000 farmers have assembled in Dublin this afternoon to protest possible cuts to the EU’s operating budget, which they claim could have a serious impact on the welfare of Irish agriculture.

The Irish Farmers’ Association says possible cuts to the EU’s next budget, which is up for negotiation in the coming months, could cut the union’s spending by as much as 30 per cent between 2014 and 2020.

This, farmers say, could put an already struggling agricultural sector under fatal pressure.
