Joint Press Release – Government Preparing to turn its back on Rural Ireland
This is not a good deal for rural Ireland and goes against everything Western Forestry Co-op stands for which is afforestation by farmers, landowners and communities. Our forests are best managed in the hands of the Irish people, and not investment funds. If this is something that you are concerned about, please contact your local TD, Senator, Councillor or otherwise, let them know how you feel and send them a copy of this press release to show most forestry and agriculture organisations are firmly against this.
