Concerns have been raised about the future of the veterinary lab in Kilkenny

There had been talks that the veterinary lab in Kilkenny would be shut down and would cease operations.

Uncertainty still surrounds the local facility after a working group set up to review labs around the country said, earlier this year, that they’d favour closing it.

However, local members of the IFA met with the Agriculture Minister Michael Creed recently, who assured them that wouldn’t happen.

Kilkenny IFA chairman, John Bambrick, says it was a positive meeting.
