Teagasc's Kinsealy Research Centre to Close


The Minister for Agriculture has told the Dáil that Teagasc's Kinsealy Research Centre should close. Minister Simon Coveney said that Teagasc cannot maintain four sites in the greater Dublin area.

Minister Coveney said it is part of a rationalisation programme.
