THE Irish Cattle and Sheep Farmer’s Association (ICSA) this week arranged emergency consignments of fodder to be delivered to farmers in West Cork who have seen the worst weather conditions in the country over the summer months.


The move comes following a visit to West Cork by ICSA president Gabriel Gilmartin who saw at first hand the serious situation facing many farmers across West Cork.



The first deliveries were made at Togher Cross near Dunmanway and included straw, silage and hay from County Kildare where there is a surplus.



Further deliveries are expected from Wexford where there is also a surplus.
