“I am particularly pleased to see that these payments, worth some €1 million, are issuing on target, particularly given the significance of these payments to individual island farmers," said the minister, who previously announced the designation of offshore islands in May 2015 as Areas of Specific Constraint under the new Areas of Natural Constraints (ANC) Scheme, which replaced the Disadvantaged Areas Scheme.
The scheme is co-funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD).
“I am delighted that these payments have commenced to issue given the challenges island farmers face on a daily basis, particularly in view of the difficult weather conditions they have encountered during recent months," said Minister Coveney.
"Island farming is difficult in the best of years and the objectives of this aid is to maintain agricultural production in these areas, to provide a boost to the economic activity on the islands, and to deliver environmental benefits such as the preservation of their unique habitats."
The minister confirmed that payments will continue to issue as individual cases are confirmed eligible for payment in the coming weeks.
The land consists of mostly fertile ground with no buildings, with water supplied via a private well, with the adjacent traditional four-bed farmhouse has been refurbished in recent years, with oak floors and solid doors.
Agents Keane Mahony Smith have set a guide price of €225,000 for the house and €7,500/acre for the land, with the property also available in lots including the land or the house on their own.

#WATERFRONT PROPERTY - Impressive non-residential farm-quality lands overlooking Oysterhaven Bay in Co Cork are on the market for €2.55 million.
Extending to 270 acres, Ballymacus Farm - just 6km from Kinsale - is being offered for sale in the entire. The farm represents quality arable land with easily managed divisions, a superb coastal position and a pleasant undulating aspect.
The majority of the farm is in tillage production and laid out in five principal divisions, with the balance of the farm comprising pasturage along the headland areas.

Set at the southeastern end of the peninsula at Breghane Point and facing across to Oysterhaven Bay, the combination of undulating hills, the dramatic coastline and expansive sea views creates a breathtaking experience.
Ballymacus Farm is available through joint agents David Ashmore at Sherry FitzGerald and Christy Buckly with an asking price, of €2,550,000. To arrange a viewing contact Christy Buckly at 021 488 5173 or David Ashmore at 01 237 6320.
