Veon open of­fice in Castleis­land

The Kerryman (Tralee Edition) - - NEWS -

KERRY Sinn Féin TD Martin Fer­ris TD – the party’s spokesper­son on Agri­cul­ture and Fish­eries of­fi­cially opened Veon’s new re­gional of­fice at the Ad­vance Fac­tory Unit at Castleis­land Mart last Wed­nes­day morn­ing.

Veon is Ire­land’s lead­ing forestry com­pany and has ex­panded over the past year to meet the pro­fes­sional forestry needs of farm­ers and for­est owner clients.

Deputy Fer­ris wel­comed the new of­fice which he said was a vote of con­fi­dence in the com­mer­cial forestry sec­tor in Kerry.

He said the new of­fice also high­lighted the in­creas­ingly im­por­tant role that forestry plays in pro­vid­ing in­come di­ver­si­fi­ca­tion op­por­tu­ni­ties for farm­ers, es­pe­cially in light of con­tin­u­ing un­cer­tainty over the ef­fects of Brexit on farm in­comes.

Veon’s Castleis­land Mart of­fices will be man­aged by foresters Chris Byrne and Daniel O’Con­nell.

“With Brexit loom­ing in the back­ground it makes more sense now than ever be­fore to pro­tect fu­ture in­come streams and take ad­van­tage of the grants and pre­mia pay­ments avail­able from the For­est Ser­vice” Chris Byrne said.
