A massive increase in land designations under the EU Biodiversity Strategy represents a serious threat to farming communities in the west of Ireland, the Irish Natura and Hill Farmers Association (INHFA) has warned.

Launching a national campaign to raise awareness around the implications of the new EU land designation strategy, the INHFA president Colm O'Donnell said the move would significantly curtail the farming activities of thousands of land owners across the midlands and down the western seaboard.
