A local Fine Gael Councillor and farmer is calling for all farming organisations to come together to submit a joint counter proposal to the emission targets agreed yesterday.
Fine Gael Councillor Paraic Brady is urging groups such as the IFA, the ICSA and the Irish Natura & Hill Farmers Association to join against the government decision.
It was agreed yesterday evening that a reduced carbon emissions cut for the agriculture sector would be introduced from 30 per cent to 25 per cent.
Farmers had campaigned for the levels to stay at 22 percent, with many back bench government TDs supporting the calls.
Councillor Brady believes Fianna Fail and Fine Gael should have pressed the Greens for a more realistic target.
Speaking to Let's Talk today, the local farmer said he'd stand behind rural communities even if it meant the collapse of government and a general election.
''I'm a farmer myself, I represent a rural community. I want my kids to grow up in rural Ireland and they're the people that I have to speak on behalf of. So if and when I go to knock on a door, that's the voice of the people that I'm representing. Now unfortunately so what if it meant bringing down the Government at this moment in time, well I feel at least people would have more respect for you, if you've been hoodwinked into something that's not achievable.''
