IHRA update

Meeting with Department of Agriculture Tuesday October 9th @ 11.30am
IHRA Attendees
Mark Flanagan Director IHRA 
George McCullough Director IHRA

The meeting was to discuss the finalising of the Five Year Strategic Plan and the IHRA Budget Submission for both Seed Funding and Reocurring Annual Feeding.
The Strategic Plan is now very near completion with a few additional agreed changes to be done this week. These changes will be made in the coming days and the document updated. We envisage the plan being signed off by the Department at the end of this week. It will then be signed off and adopted by the IHRA Board at there next board meeting scheduled for October the 16th. 
Also discussed was our two budget submissions with both documents gone through thoroughly. Further discussions will take place over the next week where the IHRA believes a positive outcome will be achieved.
Already agreed is that any funding granted will be on a euro for euro basis as per the Indecon Document.
Further updates will be given when at hand.
