A farmers’ group says landowners affected by a proposed water pipeline through the Midlands will have to be compensated.

The ICSA says the proposed development will cause ‘huge disruption and a significant economic cost to farmers’.

The preferred route for a pipeline between Tipperary and Dublin travels along the border of Laois and Offaly.

ICSA Rural Development Chairman Seamus Sherlock says they will be meeting soon with Irish Water’s parent company, Ervia.
