The Irish Cattle and Sheep Farmers’ Association has welcomed the news that vehicles transporting fodder will receive a special derogation under recent height restriction legislation.
ICSA president Patrick Kent said, “It was critically important that loads of fodder were not subject to the new height restrictions because the cost implications would be far too severe. Minister Varadkar has taken the common-sense approach here and I very much welcome the exemption.”
“I commend Martin Heydon TD for bringing forward the proposal to create the exemption for these types of loads.”
