€6k FINE FOR FARMERS WHO INTERFERED WITH CATTLE TAGS

March 11, 2011

A judge told a father and son from Donegal he was imposing “a substantial fine” on them because their actions threatened to undermine the good reputation of the Irish beef herd.

Martin (72) and Noel Devine (41) of Kirkneedy, Newmills, Letterkenny, were convicted and fined €6,000 at Letterkenny District Court after pleading guilty to interfering with tags on cattle at their farm.

The Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food took the case against them in relation to offences committed on separate dates in 2008. They were convicted of a number of breaches of national and European legislation.
