On election, Sean Dennehy set out his key priorities for the sheep sector and Irelands 34,000 sheep farmers.

He strongly commended John’s work as Chairman, saying he delivered €80m over 4 years to sheep farmers through the IFA’s successful campaign in securing the new €10 per ewe sheep welfare scheme.

In addition he said at both National and EU level John Lynskey was an outstanding representative for Irish farmers and the sheep sector.
