Meet the founder of Farmers’ Alliance

Liam McLaughlin is a sheep farmer from Donegal who launched Farmers’ Alliance with the aim of creating a unified voice of the farming community and pushing back on the ever-increasing policies, which are a threat to our livelihoods. The group grew rapidly to over 20,000 members and in 2023, we were encouraged by many members to register as a political party, a process that we have now completed. We look forward to contesting the Local, General and European Elections with a view to bringing sanity back to local council chambers, Dáil and Seanad Éireann and the European Parliament.
