IFA regional chairman, Frank Brady says many people in the community are isolated and lonely.

He added it is important to provide opportunities for people to get out socially, have a chat and meet neighbours and friends.

"We do need as a society to talk more about what's happening and what is ravaging our society at the moment," he continued.

"We all know somebody that has chosen a very permanent solution to a short term problem.

"I feel that tonight is a start for the farming community and indeed for anybody else that feels they can get something from this.

"Everyone is welcome to come to this meeting tonight - you don't have to be an IFA member."
