What’s taking place across these acres of fine land in Rathaniskea this week is about much more than ploughing…it’s about the talk that goes on on the fringes…farmers comparing notes on the year gone by, on prices at marts and of course on the Common Agricultural Policy, or the CAP. Sean spoke to Fine Gael MEP for Ireland East, Mairead McGuinness…Fianna Fail spokesperson on Agriculture, Eamon O’Cuiv and Justin McCarthy, Editor of the Irish Farmers’ Journal about what’s happening on the ground. Marie Louise O'Donnel and Sean went on a walkabout at the Ploughing.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/today-with-sean-o-rourke/programmes/2013/0925/476333-today-with-sean-o-rourke-wednesday-25-september-2013/?clipid=1318196
This morning talks on the Common Agriculture Policy between EU member states and the European Commission will resume in Luxembourg. Negotiations on CAP have been going on for the past 18 months , with farm payments being the key issue. As Ireland comes to the end of its EU Presidency this week it’s anxious to broker a deal over the next 3 days. Joining Myles were Darragh McCullough, Deputy Editor, Farming, Irish Independent and John Bryan, President of IFA.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/today-with-pat-kenny/programmes/2013/0624/458525-today-with-pat-kenny-monday-24-june-2013/?clipid=1248746
A CAP deal moved closer this week following a two day informal meeting in Dublin. EU Agriculture Commissioner Ciolos said that considerable progress was made in the negotiations and that he is “more” optimistic that we will have a political agreement by the end of June. But not all farmers like what they’re hearing on the grapevine so far and thousands of them took to the streets of Dublin to vent their frustration. So even if a deal is reached it looks like Agriculture Minister Simon Coveney will have a hard job on his hands to sell it to all ...http://www.rte.ie/radio1/today-with-pat-kenny/programmes/2013/0531/453800-today-with-pat-kenny-friday-31-may-2013/?clipid=1229315
EU agriculture ministers have agreed a deal on the reform of the Common Agricultural Policy. While Irish farmers have given a cautious welcome to elements of the agreement there are concerns about how equitable it will be. Under the new deal the level of future CAP payments to individual farmers will be based on the number of hectares they farm. This raises concerns that farmers with lots of land, but who produce relatively little, would have an unfair advantage. F.G, MEP, Mairead McGuinness joined Pat from Brussels to bring us up to date on the deal.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/today-with-pat-kenny/programmes/2013/0320/377496-today-with-pat-kenny-wednesday-20th-march-2013/?clipid=1034767
