The Climate Debate And Farmers

On Monday, two special climate change events are being held in Ennis, with a specific focus on farmers.

The IFA is holding one at 8:30pm in the West County Hotel, with Professor John Sweeney of Maynooth University to give a presentation on climate change in relation to the future of farming.

He will be joined by a number of figures from within the IFA on that topic and before that, at 7pm, Prof Sweeney will also address a Transition Clare talk in the Old Ground Hotel at 7pm.


Clare IFA chair Tom Lane joins us on this week’s show for more on that (from 13:34).

Also this week, Teagasc’s Conor O’Reilly is on hand with advice for the Basic Payment Scheme (1:16).
