PROGRESS ON HERITAGE BILL MUST BE FOLLOWED BY IMMEDIATE IMPLEMENTATION

Environment & Rural Affairs, Hill Farming

With the Heritage Bill to extend the dates for burning gorse and hedge-cutting passing final stage in the Dail this week, IFA National Hill Farming Committee Chairman Flor McCarthy said that an early conclusion is now necessary with immediate implementation.

Flor McCarthy said Minister Josepha Madigan has pushed this Bill, along with her predecessor Heather Humphreys, and has got much support from other political parties for a more practical way of managing the Irish landscape.

Hill farmers need burning to be allowed during the month of March as this will lead to a better management of hill land and avoid abandonment.
