ICSA rural development chair Tim Farrell has said an extension to the slurry spreading deadline is now a requirement and a decision must be made on it today. “Weather conditions have not improved to a point whereby slurry can be effectively spread over the weekend,” he said.
“The responsibility ultimately lies with the Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government, Eoghan Murphy. I would urge him to liaise with Minister Creed at this critical time and make a prudent decision given the circumstances we are in. Ground conditions remain unsuitable and we need to ensure that damaging panic spreading is prevented.”
