Deputy Andrew Doyle

Western Forestry Co-op would like to congratulate Minister Andrew Doyle on his appointment as Minister of State for Food, Forestry and Horticulture at the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine.

Minister Doyle was first elected at the 2007 general election to the Dáil and became the Deputy Spokesperson on Agriculture with special responsibility for Food and Horticulture. In 2010, he was promoted to the opposition frontbench as the spokesperson for Agriculture. Deputy Doyle was re-elected to the Dáil at the 2011 general election and served as the Chairman of the Agriculture Committee.

Minister Doyle is a forest owner himself and hails from Co Wicklow, the most forested county in Ireland. We look forward to working with Minister Doyle during his term as Minister with responsibility for Forestry.
