PAYMENTS of over €13.35 million to around 100,000 farmers have begun.
The Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Charlie McConalogue TD, today announced the commencement of payments this morning.
This money was deducted from their 2019 Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) payments under the Financial Discipline rule and is now being reimbursed in line with the EU regulations.
Minister McConalogue said: “I am pleased to confirm that these payments are now being reimbursed to eligible farmers.
“These payments will bring the total paid to Irish farmers under the 2019 Basic Payment Scheme to over €1.194 billion.”
