We realise that the loss of the shows for the Summer will be tough for many, but it is a prudent step to take for many organisations at this time. The Irish Agri Industry made the sacrifice in 2001 for Foot and Mouth and were able to bounce back. Irish communities have been impacted by this as a whole and the general economy will come back from this as well. The most important thing is that we all come back from this and that means staying apart and following all government guidelines. Social distancing and government guidelines are there to reduce infections and safeguard the whole economy. The agrifood industry is an essential service that will keep striving to provide high-quality products. Please ensure that you support Irish Agricultural businesses throughout this time.
