An issue over a special license through the Environmental Protection Agency was also raised by the company

The Chairperson of the Turf Cutters and Contractors Association say the campaign to find a way for bog owners affected by a recent High Court decision to access turf on Bord na Mona lands will continue.

Politicians attended a meeting with the semi state company today where management stated that despite efforts over the last number of weeks, they could not find a way around the ban.

Politicians raised the possibility of people purchasing the land or forming a co-operative and therefore assuming all responsibilities was considered, but Bord na Mona say that would have be worked out though a stakeholders' forum on milled peat which is underway at the moment.
