The payment is part of the €117 million that is being issued to farmers nationally under the scheme, which replaces the Disadvantaged Areas Scheme under the new Rural Development Programme.

Welcoming the announcement by Agriculture Minister Simon Coveney, Minister Jimmy Deenihan says the payments will provide a boost for 4,165 farmers in Kerry, who have been approved for the scheme.

Payments will continue to issue as individual farmers’ cases are confirmed eligible for payment.
