Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine Charlie McConalogue T.D., has welcomed the lifting of the requirement for compulsory facemask wearing at livestock marts from last Monday as per new public health guidelines.

Minister McConalogue paid tribute to the efforts of mart staff and farmers in keeping marts operational throughout the pandemic but warned, “The risk of Covid-19 still remains in our communities, so I urge all farmers and mart staff to continue to take heed of the public health advice and be mindful of others as we move into this new phase.”
