Issues at Dan Brennan’s north Kilkenny farm raised again in the Dáil last night

It's already been established that the farmer and his practices weren't to blame

A review into the case of a north Kilkenny farm was raised in the Dáil last night.

Livestock and trees on Dan Brennan’s Castlecomer holding failed to thrive in the 1990s and early noughties – tests and visits by experts showed that the farmer and his practices weren’t to blame.

Previous reviews were ruled out but a number of representatives last night called for a U-turn on those decisions.

Among them Deputy John McGuinness was joined by colleagues Michael Fitzmaurice, Jackie Cahill and Matt Carthy in the transaction with Minister Charlie McConalogue.
