Connaughton welcomes new AEOS scheme


The announcement of a new AEOS scheme was welcomed today by East Galway T.D. Paul Connaughton.

‘The new €20 million scheme will be open to six thousand farmers and will provide for payments of up to €4,000 per annum. It is a welcome move and something that I have lobbied the Minister on. I would have wished that the scheme had gone further, but this is the maximum level that can be achieved at this time, given the current economic constraints and I hope that many farmers across East Galway will be able to access this new scheme.’
