Fianna Fail and Mayo A HISTORY OF DECEIT AND SELL OUT

This was the mantra of Fianna Fail as they sold out the nation in the 1970’s and the 1980s STARTING WITH THE SELL OUT OF NORTHERN NATIONALIST ,AND LATER  OUR FISHING INDUSTRY TO THE E.E.C.                           73ffcountry                      In 1973 Jack Lynch signed our entry to the E.E.C but the price paid was for the people of the western seaboard was very, very high as their main means of earning a decent living was wiped out from under them and sold to the Spanish, Dutch, and French not to forget the British and to this day in 2016 the people of our fishing communities continue to pay the price

THIS IS THE PRICE PAID AND THE LOSS INCURRED BY OUR FISHING COMMUNITIES TO THE BENEFIT OF THE BIG FARMERS OF THE EAST COST AND MUNSTER EXCLUDING (OUR MARKET GARDENERS WHO HAVE ALSO PAID A HIGH PRICE AS ACRES OF GLASS HOUSES ARE LOST IN NORTH COUNTY DUBLIN) WHICH SUFFERED A DOUBLE BLOW AS THEIR FISHING COMMUNITIES WHERE ALSO WIPED OUT

 IN THE LATEST ROUND OF FUNDING FROM THE EU FISHING AUTHORITY FOR THE YEARS FROM 2014-2020 ARE AS FOLLOWS 

SPAIN WILL RECEIVE € 1.16 BILLION, POLAND WILL RECEIVE €531.2 MILLION,PORTUGAL WILL RECEIVE €392.5 MILLION  

IRELAND WILL RECEIVE €147.6 MILLION 

BELOW,THIS IS IS WHAT JACK LYNCH AND FIANNA FAIL GAVE AWAY TO THE EU TO THE BENEFIT OF THE BIG FARMERS AS THE YOUTH AND YOUNG FROM OUR FISHING COMMUNITIES HAD TO EMIGRATE TO FAR SHORES  

THANKS MR LYNCH AND FIANNA FAIL

Summary of the Operational Programme for support from the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund in Spain Programme description: Main objectives: The Operational Programme (OP) “Fisheries and Maritime 2014-2020” for support from the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) in Spain aims at achieving key national development priorities along with the “Europe 2020” objectives. The OP will support the implementation of the general reform of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) in Spain. EU funding will support investment in the fisheries, aquaculture and processing industries to boost competitiveness and sustainability. Elements underpinning such a development include adjusting fleet capacity to available resources, reducing energy consumption, developing the production of higher added value products and ensuring environmental sustainability. In this context, particular attention will be paid to measures reducing the impact of fisheries on the marine environment and to protecting aquatic biodiversity and ecosystems through marine protected areas. Funding will also go to projects that improve the livelihood of fishing communities by increased support for Fisheries Local Action Groups (FLAGs), and to supporting Spanish public bodies in enforcing CFP rules and providing sound data for the management of the fisheries and aquaculture sectors. Funding priorities: The Spanish OP is organised around the following priorities: – € 352.5 million (30% of the total OP allocation) will support the adaptation of the Spanish fleet to an evolving environment in a combined effort to boost its competitiveness and reduce its impacts on the ecosystems. A third of this allocation will go to protecting aquatic biodiversity and ecosystems through marine protected areas and reducing the impact of fisheries on the marine environment. – € 205.9 million (18% of total EMFF allocation) will go to achieving the objectives of the Spanish national strategic plan for aquaculture (PEAE) that aims at boosting the competitiveness and sustainability of the Spanish aquaculture sector. Actions will aim at minimising the environmental impact of production processes (such as recirculation systems, closed-loop systems and offshore aquaculture); improving spatial planning by mapping sites suitable for aquaculture; and fostering technological innovation and investment capacity of aquaculture businesses. – € 155.9 million (13% of the allocation) will go towards compliance with CFP rules regarding control and data collection. It aims to improve scientific assessment of a number of stocks and reinforce various control and inspection schemes carried out by public bodies. – € 107.6 million (9% of total EMFF allocation) will help increase employment and territorial cohesion in fisheries-dependent areas by creating new jobs and diversifying activities, and creating added value in activities and local products through fisheries local action groups (FLAGs). – € 274.4 million (24% of total EMFF allocation) will go towards investing in developing new products, processes, conservation techniques, management systems and commercial strategies for fisheries and aquaculture products, through development of quality labels, better organisation of producer organisations, and a specific compensation scheme for the outermost region of the Canary Islands. A specific focus is the implementation of the discard ban throughout the value chain. – € 5.3 million (0.5% of total EMFF allocation) will support the appropriate mapping of marine ecosystems, a programme for the exploration of the continental shelf and slope (through surveys) and other measures contributing to increasing marine knowledge (sea bed data, mapping, bathymetric analyses). – € 59.8 million (5.5% of the financial resources) are allocated to technical assistance in order to ensure efficient administration of EU funding, including support to publicity and information measures as well as evaluations. Regions: The programme covers the whole territory of Spain, including the outermost region of the Canary Islands. Fund: Financial information: – Total OP budget: € 1 558 280 753 – Total EU contribution: € 1 161 620 889 – Total national contribution: € 396 659 864 Managing Authority: Dirección General de Ordenación Pesquera de la Secretaría General de Pesca Ministerio de Agricultura, Alimentación y Medio Ambie

Summary of the Operational Programme for support from the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund in Ireland Main objectives: The Operational Programme (OP) supported by the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) in Ireland aims at achieving key national development priorities along with the EU’s “Europe 2020” objectives. The OP will support the general reform of the EU’s Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) and the development of its Integrated Maritime Policy (IMP) in Ireland. The OP strategy is designed around the Irish national priorities in the agri-food sector: ‘Act Smart’ by encouraging knowledge and innovation, ‘Think Green’ through a responsible and sustainable use of resources, ‘Achieve Growth’ in order to maintain and create jobs. Funding aims at increasing the competitiveness of the fisheries and aquaculture sectors through innovation and skills, while promoting a more efficient and sustainable use of resources. Funding will also help local coastal communities to improve their livelihood by supporting small-scale fisheries and through significantly increased support for Fisheries Local Action Groups (FLAGs). Due to its geographical position, Ireland has major responsibilities in enforcing the rules of the CFP, but also in providing sound data for the management of the fisheries and aquaculture sectors. The EMFF support will help Ireland to fulfil its obligations and better achieve these challenges. Funds will also be used to improve the competitiveness of small and medium-sized companies in the marketing and processing sectors, through investments to reduce energy costs; and to improve safety, product quality and traceability. Compared to the past, a greater focus is put on the sustainable use of resources, marine knowledge and preserving marine biodiversity, local-led development of fisheries and aquaculture areas, and shifting towards a low-carbon economy. Funding priorities: The Irish OP is organised around the following priorities: – Union Priority 1 (UP1): € 33.5 million (23% of the total EMFF allocation) aim at assuring the sustainable development of fishing activities, while protecting the marine environment. The OP will help Ireland to adjust fleet capacity to available resources and support the Irish fishing fleet in tackling the obligation to land all catches, also through investments in port infrastructures. – Union Priority 2 (UP2): € 14.9 million (10% of the EMFF allocation) will support the Irish National Strategic Plan for Aquaculture that aims at boosting the competitiveness of the aquaculture sector. Support will go towards three main areas: sustainable aquaculture production; knowledge, innovation and new technology; and more effective governance of marine planning. – Union Priority 3 (UP3): € 69.8 million (47% of the EMFF allocation) will go towards compliance with CFP rules regarding control and data collection. Funding will be used to further develop risk-based inspection of fishing activities and enhance cooperation with other Member States to ensure effective fisheries control and inspection in Ireland and at EU level. EMFF funding will also ensure a more efficient data collection and management, by improving scientific assessment of stocks and the knowledge on the state of the marine environment at sea. – Union Priority 4 (UP4): € 6 million (4% of the EMFF allocation) will support local development initiatives – a substantial, eleven-fold increase compared to the 2007-2013 funding period. EMFF funds will create and maintain jobs in fisheries and aquaculture areas and strengthen the role of the small-scale fisheries sector in the development of local communities. – Union Priority 5 (UP5): € 17.3 million (12% of the EMFF allocation) will go towards creating scale in the Irish marketing and processing sectors, starting from the base of very small-scale businesses. Funds will also go to developing new products from underutilised/noncommercial species. – Union Priority 6 (UP6): € 5.3 million (3.5% of the EMFF allocation) will be used on measures to improve the knowledge on the state of the marine environment and the level of protection of marine areas, through collection and harmonisation of marine data and development of marine spatial planning capacities. – € 0.8 million (0.5% of the EMFF allocation) are allocated to technical assistance in order to reinforce implementation and ensure efficient administration of the EU funding.
