The Irish Cattle and Sheep Farmers’ Association is urging motorists to be extra careful on the roads as farming activity goes up a gear as a result of the good weather.

ICSA’s Connaught/Ulster vice president and spokesperson on health and safety issues, John Flynn, said, “With the fine weather comes an upsurge in farming activity, particularly work involving tractors and other heavy machinery. I would urge those involved in farm work and all other road users to put safety first at all times and to be extremely vigilant.”

ICSA Tillage chair Gavin Carberry has said Minister McConalogue must put money on the table if the decline in the area under tillage is to be reversed. “The tillage sector is in dire need of a significant and multi-year financial boost which must be delivered if the Department are serious about meeting the target of increasing the tillage area to 400,000ha by 2030 as part of the Climate Action Plan,” he said.
