Wicklow Fine Gael Minister Simon Harris has announced that Wicklow’s farmers are set to receive another €323,000 under the final payments of the Green Low-Carbon Agri-Environment Scheme.

“I am delighted to be able to confirm that payments to Wicklow farmers under the Green Low-Carbon Scheme will commence from Friday the 10th of March. Today’s payments mark the final action of GLAS before the Agri-Climate Rural Environment Scheme [ACRES], a €1.5 billion flagship environmental scheme secured by Minister for Agriculture, Charlie McConalogue will begin in a few weeks time. ACRES has been secured to support 46,000 farmers across the country, and I look forward to Wicklow’s farmers being able to reap the rewards of both of these important schemes.”

“Our farmers provide an irreplaceable service for our county and country, and I will continue to ensure that I support them in my work however possible.” Minister Harris concluded.

Minister McConalogue encouraged any farmers with queries in relation to GLAS to direct them by email to GLAS@agriculture.gov.ie
