A Kerry farmer is offering a reward of €2,000 for any information leading to the recovery of 45 in-lamb ewes stolen from his commonage, as exclusively revealed on farmersjounal.ie last week.

Michael Joe O’Shea had 400 Scotch ewes wintering on an open commonage called the Comh, Bailelochaigh, on Mount Brandon. He and his brother-in-law Paddy Hanafin realised the ewes were missing when the flock was brought down from the hill for lambing.
