Stakeholders including all farm organisations, processor bodies and political parties took part in a CAP consultation conference this Wednesday in Co Kildare. Chairing the session, Department of Agriculture secretary general Aidan O'Driscoll said this was a chance to "influence Ireland's position" as EU countries now enter months of talks with the European Commission and Parliament on initial proposals made in recent weeks to operate the CAP between 2021 and 2027.
