Calls to develop the wool industry in Ireland

Tue, Sep 22, 2020

There are calls on the Government to support the wool industry in Ireland.

Deputy Sean Canney said; "In Ireland the value of wool has dropped and is considered worthless at present. As a product wool is natural, it is carbon friendly, and it is renewable.

“There are many products that can be produced from wool, for example clothes, fabrics, insulation, and many more. We need to take control of this industry, develop products, support business involved in developing by products and initiate the development of a scouring plant in Ireland. [Currently] we export wool to the UK for this process.
