IFA Urges Farmers Installing Generators to Deal with Power Cuts

20 October 2017, at 12:00am

IRELAND - IFA Deputy President Richard Kennedy has urged farmers who have had their power supply cut off due to storm damage to put safety first if seeking to install a temporary generator on their farm.

Mr Kennedy said it was clear to IFA that many farm families still had no electric power and were in a very stressful situation having to deal with both family home issues and farming operations such as milking.

Mr Kennedy said to farmers, "Do not take any chances when it comes to generators. Look for help and make sure you have them properly installed."
