The Young Farmers’ Clubs of Ulster will play host to the European Rally 2016 from 30th July to 6th August which will see over 100 young people from rural Europe travelling to Northern Ireland for an intensive week long programme of leadership, teamwork, education and intercultural experience.

The theme for this year, which has been chosen by YFCU, is Bridging Diversity, Growing Together and this will be reflected throughout all activities and visits during the Rally which will be held at CAFRE, Greenmount Campus.

“I am delighted to support the Young Farmers’ Club of Ulster’s barbecue and ceilidh night as part of the European Rally.”

Jim Nicholson, MEP

Ulster Unionist MEP Jim Nicholson who is supporting the rally said: “I am delighted to support the Young Farmers’ Club of Ulster’s barbecue and ceilidh night as part of the European Rally.

“The theme of this year’s rally is an important one, and I know that the YFCU will be great ambassadors for our country during this rally.

“As a Member of the European Parliament, it is great to see young people from across Europe taking such a strong interest in agriculture, and this is a perfect opportunity for these people to come together and learn from each other.”
