As silage cutting season begins, the Irish Farmers’ Association and the Road Safety Authority are urging caution on our roads.
The two organisations are appealing to farmers and other road users to share the road safely.
Roads have gotten busier since the easing of travel restrictions as walkers, cyclists and horse riders all enjoy the outdoors.
Both organisations want farming contractors to always be on the lookout for these vulnerable road users.
Sam Waide, the Chief Executive of the RSA wants farmers keep left and allow vehicles to pass them to avoid traffic building up.
IFA President Tim Cullinane told Midwest News that motorists also need to be on the lookout for farm machinery.
