The EPA has ruled that a Wexford pig farm does not require an industrial emissions license

For those following the Killnick pig farm case, there was a development yesterday. As many people will know, pig farms are challenging because of the odours they create which grow as the farm expands and/or intensifies. There are many watching this case.

The Irish Independent noted yesterday how:

"A High Court case taken the operator of a farm in Killnick, which was convicted under the Air Pollution Act last year, has been adjourned until February of next year. Following a ruling by An Bord Plean├íla in April of this year that the pig farm was in breach of planning regulations, Premier Pigs Ltd, the operator of the farm, took the decision to challenge that ruling. However, after a hearing on Monday last (November 20) the case has been pushed back until February 2024".
