Independent Review of Dan Brennan Case a Positive Step – IFA

IFA President Francie Gorman said the announcement by the Minister for Agriculture Charlie McConalogue that he will initiate an independent review of an investigation relating to Dan Brennan’s farm in Castlecomer in Kilkenny was a positive step, but that the Terms of Reference of the review would be crucial.

He said Mr. Brennan had suffered a living nightmare with unexplained animal health issues in the late 90s and early 2000s on his farm, which is located beside a brick factory.

“It is a positive step that the Minister has announced the review.  I hope it will bring justice and closure for Dan Brennan and his family,” he said.

“The former IFA President Padraig Walshe led a campaign on this case and he continued to pursue it until his untimely death last year,” he said.

“We look forward to seeing the Terms of Reference for this review,” he said.
