Speaking in Brussels this morning (Thursday) at the European Council of Young (CEJA) Farmers General Assembly today, Macra na Feirme National President James Healy complemented the outgoing President of CEJA, Alan Jagoe.
“Macra na Feirme is incredibly proud of the contribution that our former President Alan Jagoe has made over the past two years as CEJA President. Today marks the end of Alan’s term as CEJA president where he has been instrumental in promoting the causes of Irish and European young farmers within the corridors of power in Brussels and beyond. His energy, commitment and dedication to the role of CEJA President has ensured that the issues of concern for young farmers are to the fore in discussions on the Common Agriculture Policy.”
“Alan has never forgotten his roots in Cork and in Macra na Feirme as he represented young farmers internationally. He consistently attributes the opportunities presented to him to lead the charge for young farmers at European level to the experience gained during his time in Macra na Feirme. Today, we wish Alan and his family continued success and congratulations on concluding his successful term.”
