A visa for a Libyan cattle purchaser has been granted, following a three-month delay.

A visa for a Libyan cattle purchaser has been granted, following a three-month delay, according to Danny Healy-Rae.

The buyer in question applied for a visa in mid-November to come to Ireland and purchase animals; he has since travelled to Spain to acquire this consignment.

The issue was raised by Danny Healy-Rae – an Independent TD for the Kerry constituency – in the Dáil last week.

“Inaction of the Government”

Releasing a statement on social media yesterday (Tuesday, March 6th), he said:

“It’s sad to think that Irish farmers lost the sale of 4,000 bulls due to the inaction of this Government who are assisting the factories in controlling the prices for cattle by closing down live trade markets like this opportunity from Libya.”

“I am actively working with the Irish cattle exporter to get this buyer to return here as soon as possible.” The statement concluded.
