Thurles farmer, Jackie Cahill has been re-elected as president of the Irish Creamery Milk Suppliers’ Association (ICMSA) following a vote of the ninety nine member National Council which held yesterday at Carlton Castletroy Park Hotel, in Limerick city.
Mr Cahill, a Thurles dairy farmer, who milks 80 cows and rears 220 other stock on his 220-acre farm, has already led the organisation for four years, defeated his immediate predecessor, Co Longford farmer Pat O’Rourke by a margin of 54 votes to 45.
The 47-year old will now serve an additional two years as President of the ICMSA, allowing him to hold office for the maximum term permissible which is six years.
Mr Cahill’s victory will be seen as further vindication of the association’s current strategy in dealing with the Irish Government and the EU Commission’s dairy policy, according to sources within the ICMSA.
