The meeting will take place in the Aghyaran Centre, Co Tyrone on Monday, 9th March 2015 at 7.30pm and will be addressed by DARD Minister Michelle O’Neill and senior officials from the department.

Speaking ahead of the meeting Mr Doherty said: “The Single Farm Payment is absolutely vital for farmers across the country and the recent agreement on CAP reform and potential changes to the SFP has provoked a lot of interest among the farming community.

“The meeting will also provide an excellent opportunity to find out more about the Farm Business Improvement Scheme, the Young Farmers Scheme and other opportunities for rural communities.”

He extended an open invitation to everyone to attend and ask questions.
