Cavan Beef Plan latest to vote no confidence in national Chairs

The Beef Plan group in Cavan has become the latest to pass a motion of no confidence in the organisation’s national chairs.

The group issued a statement this morning saying its AGM and county elections in Cavan have been postponed until after a national EGM later this month.

The Cavan Chair and vice-Chair Padraig Duffy and Kieran Cooney have issued a warning to anyone who organises a meeting in the county under the Beef Plan banner.

They say despite reports, no EGM has been planned for County Cavan this week and “any unauthorised meetings will be seen as a serious breach of discipline”.

A dispute has emerged within the Beef Plan movement nationally, with a number of counties passing no confidence motions in the chairs.

Statement from Cavan Beef Plan

Cavan AGM and County elections deferred until after our National EGM which takes place on Friday 26th January 2020 in Portlaoise.

We Padraig Duffy and Kieran Cooney have not called any county EGM for this Friday night 16th of January.

Responsibility for calling meetings lies with us and  the full committee and not by any one single member of our committee. 

Any unauthorised meetings will be seen as a serious breach of discipline and will be dealt with at national level.Cavan committee has passed a vote of no confidence in joint chairs eamon Curley and hugh doyle
