Seven “long-serving” IFA staff members are set to leave the organisation in the coming months.
In February, the farm lobby group made a voluntary early retirement offer available to staff as part of a €1.134m programme to restructure the organisation.
The process has now been completed and seven staff have accepted the offer.
‘Huge commitment and loyalty’
IFA director-general, Damian McDonald, said that the departing staff had given outstanding service to IFA and Irish farmers throughout their long careers with the organisation.
“On behalf of IFA, I want to thank them for the huge commitment and loyalty they have given to the association, and to wish them and their families all the best for the future.”
IFA president, Tim Cullinan, said that having top class committed staff working with elected farmer officers is central toIFA’s success.
“On behalf of Irish farmers and the current and former officers of IFA, I want to thank the staff for the huge contribution they have made to IFA.” he said.
