Bord Na Mona Scraps Plan For Cannabis Farms On State Owned Bogs.

: 27/10/2020 - 15:06

Newbridge headquartered Bord na Mona has scrapped plans for cannabis farms in state-owned bogs.

The body had undertaken a feasibility study into producing the plant as a replacement to traditional turf cutting.

The Irish Times reports the Bord na Mona has got rid of the idea to focus instead on re-wetting bogs in an attempt to save hundreds of jobs.
