North Sligo farmer Gabriel Gilmartin, the outgoing president, will contest the forthcoming election to select an ICSA president.

Gilmartin, from Ballintrillick, says getting the best deal out of the CAP proposals will be his main priority.

Two candidates have been nominated to contest the election, which will take place on Thursday, 12th of December 2013.

Mr Gilmartin and former Leinster vice president Patrick Kent are the nominees for the position. Mr Gilmartin farms sheep and sucklers in the shadow of Ben Bulben at Ballintrillick, and was first elected president in 2009. Mr Kent farms near New Ross, Co. Wexford, operating a medium-sized mixed farm of suckler, beef and sheep, with a pedigree Belgian Blue enterprise.

The electorate is the ICSA national executive.
