Fine Gael TDs and Senators have launched a blistering attack on the environmental and heritage body An Taisce, calling for a review into its State funding.

Describing An Taisce as the “leading threat to the future of rural Ireland”, a group of four former Fine Gael ministers and two senators have strongly criticised the organisation for appealing a High Court decision to grant planning permission for a €140m cheese plant in Kilkenny, which could create hundreds of new jobs.
