The announcement by Minister for Agriculture Michael Creed that the fifth tranche of the Traditional Farm Buildings Grant Scheme is open for applications has generated a lot of queries from farmers. If you are serious about getting your project approved, you need to submit a well-drafted application.

Competition for a place in the scheme is fierce as always. More than 340 farmers applied in 2018, with 50 projects supported. In 2019, 279 applications were received and 76 projects were supported.
