A Pettigo farmer has won the Donegal IFA’s major European Scholarship Tour prize for 2015.

Kevin Kelly from Pettigo has been drawn to go on the IFA/FBD tour which is a fact-finding whirlwind trip, often of several regions or countries in Europe. Details of this year’s tour have yet to be finalised.

Each year the IFA conducts a membership drive and the names of branch registrars where there has been an increase in members go into a draw.

This takes place on a countywide basis.

Should Mr. Kelly be unavailable the first reserve is David Wilkin, Churchill/Glenswilly, while the second reserve is Bridget Doherty, Kilmacrennan.
