FarmPEAT Project Feature on RTE1 News

May 9, 2024 | News

The FarmPEAT project, in which Irish Rural Link is a partner, is a locally-led, innovative, results-based pilot programme for farmers who manage lands that surround some of Ireland’s finest remaining raised bogs in the midlands of Ireland. The project is funded by the European Innovative Partnership (EIP).

On Sunday the 5th May, FarmPEAT featured on the RTE1 News. Speaking with two of the farmers participating in the project, they talk about the benefits of the project, not just for the environment and local biodiversity but also for the farmers themselves. Public Relations Officer for the project Katie Smirnova explains the project and results to date of the project.
