Avian flu has been found in a wild bird in County Tipperary.
The Department of Agriculture has confirmed a case of H5N6 avian influenza was found in the wild on the 31st January.
It's the same strain that has been confirmed in the UK and elsewhere in Europe, but it's the only case detected in Ireland so far.
Any risk to humans is low and poultry meat is safe to eat, provided it's properly cooked.
However the Department is advising farmers to apply strict bio-security measures and keep birds inside or under cover.
