IFA Should Not Take Money From Farmers Accounts Without Permission

By August 25, 2016No Comments

With regard to the controversy over the deduction of monies from farmers cheques to go to the IFA, it is my firm belief that if the IFA was forced to ask farmers for their donations and have them sign a document accordingly then it might start giving them proper representation. If the money they are taking out of farmers cheques is voluntary then the least they should do is to ask farmers to sign a docket before taking their money. If you want to become a member of a GAA or Soccer or Rugby club you go in and pay them membership. They don’t come and take money out of your wages every week or every month.
