Farm Safety Week: Aontús Becky Kealy With Norma Rohan (Embrace FARM)
"Yesterday, I had a zoom meeting with Norma Rohan, who along with her husband Brian are the founders of EMBRACE FARM.
Embrace Farm is a Farm Accident Support Network. They are one of its kind in that they are the ONLY support group for people who have been affected by farm accidents in Ireland.
Up to their establishment there was no help or support for families in this situation.
I am so impressed with the work that they do, here is our recorded zoom meeting.
This week is Farm Safety Week, we are receiving a lot of information on the do's and don't of Farm safety but this is a part that isn't spoken about.
I hope that some of my Rural Constituents within farming communities will benifit from this video and if anyone is sufferning or grieving in Silence, please reach out to Embrace Farm. "
This farm safety week, Aontú Rep for Cork North West Becky Kealy Aontú wanted to do something different to try help rural constituents of hers in the farming communities, and not just repeat the generic messaging so often heard every time this week comes around.
A massive thanks to Norma Rohan from Embrace FARM who sat down with Becky to talk about their amazing work to support those who have been affected by farm accidents in Ireland!
