Farmers angry over map errors: Irwin



NEWRY & Armagh DUP Assemblyman and Stormont Agriculture Committee member William Irwin has said he has been “inundated” with complaints from farmers who have discovered significant discrepancies in their recently issued LPIS farm maps.

Mr Irwin who highlighted concerns in recent weeks at the Stormont Agriculture Committee says the issue seems to be more widespread than first thought and has caused alarm in the farming community.

He said he has listened to the concerns of a large number of farmers who have received the new maps but who find that where larger areas of ground exist, without defined boundaries, the ownership of the land is wrongly detailed.
