Mr. Walsh Mr. Walsh
Minister for Agriculture, Food and Rural Development (Mr. Walsh): Where a herdowner includes commonage in an area aid application, he must provide proof of his entitlement to claim this commonage. In this case the persons named have been contacted by the area aid unit and requested to submit the relevant proof. Until this matter is resolved no area aid related payments can issue.
