EPA Prosecutes Pig Farmers

On 24 April 2013 at Dungarvan District Court, Judge Finn sentenced two Pig Farmers, imposing a fine of €1,500 each.  He also awarded the Agency’s costs of €3,800.

The case was first before the Court on 27 February 2013 when they pleaded guilty to operating a piggery without an IPPC licence.  The Judge noted the facts and that the case was proven but deferred sentencing until 24 April 2013 to allow them submit a licence application to the Agency.
