Senior representatives of the Irish Farmer’s Association (IFA), led by President Joe Healy, are currently visiting Sweden and Norway. During the group’s first evening in Stockholm Ambassador Dympna Hayes addressed a gathering of delegates from both the IFA and the LRF (Lantbrukarnas Riksförbund / Federation of Swedish Farmers).
The purpose of the IFA’s visit is to meet with their Nordic counterparts and to gain a deeper understanding of how the border crossing between Sweden and Norway operates.
