Statement from Deputy Brendan Griffin and Senator Sean Kyne on proposals regarding sale and distribution of turf

26th April 2022 - Fine Gael Press Office

“Members of the Fine Gael Parliamentary Party had a robust meeting with Minister Ryan regarding the sale and distribution of turf.

“The meeting heard views from party colleagues.

“The use of turf as a fuel source has been declining for a number of years regardless.

“With all that is happening right now, in terms of the war, escalating energy bills, future fuel sources, Minister Ryan’s proposals as mooted in recent weeks should not proceed. This was made clear to Minister Ryan today.

“Minister Ryan agreed to meet us again in the future to continue discussions on this issue which is absolutely integral to many householders across rural Ireland.

“We look forward to this continuing engagement.”
