Farm Trauma Conference

Conference to help accident survivors and bereaved

There are about 2000 accidents on farms each year, from the minor to very major traumatic ones - resulting in loss of limb and or chronic life altering conditions. FARM is a support network for those affected by farm accidents.

On November 25, FARM will hold a farm accident survivors conference at the Midlands Park Hotel, Portlaoise. People who have survived the trauma of a farm accident, will come together. The event will provide information and support to survivors and witnesses of accidents. Each year FARM holds a national ecumenical remembrance service for all those who have died and been injured in farm accidents. The organization also conducts a number of residential bereavement weekends for families.

Timeframe for statutory registration


Draft regulations to designate the professions of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and to establish a registration board will be ready for submission to the Houses of the Oireachtas for their approval during the present session, the Minister for Health, Simon Harris, has told the Dail.


The Minister recently concluded a public consultation on  his proposal to regulate counsellors generally under the Health and Social Care Professionals Act 2005.


On foot of the consultation process, He has decided to proceed with the designation of two distinct professions under the Act, that of counsellor and psychotherapist. Each will have its own register under one registration board. This decision has been communicated to the Health and Social Care Professionals Council, the relevant professional bodies and all the respondents to the public consultation process.


Subject to the approval of the Houses, the next step will be the appointment of the 13 members of the registration board, following the submission of suitable candidates for the Minister's consideration, by the Public Appointments Service. The aim is that the registration board will be in a position early in the New Year to begin the task of drafting the various bye-laws to allow it to establish its registers.
