Ireland's designated lands are worth €2-3 billion - or between €1,000/ac and €1,500/ac - to the national economy each year, according to the EU Commission.

These benefits are provided in the form of direct farming output and in public goods such as bio-diversity, tourism and protection of carbon sinks.
