A Warning For Farmers To Take Care Working Around Electricity

The ESB has launched a nationwide campaign urging farmers to be mindful of electric cables on their land.

With the summer in full swing, and many farmers trying to make up for lost time during the heatwave, tractors and other machinery are out in force.

But the ESB says it’s vital that people remember not only their overhead electricity cables but also the ones that may be hidden underground.


Arthur Byrne from the ESB spoke on this edition of Farm Focus to encourage farmers to take steps to protect themselves from any electric-related incidents.

Also in this week’s podcast is the Mart Report from Ennis.
