Farm Assist means test


How is income from different sources assessed for Farm Assist? I do some contracting as well as farming and my spouse works part-time. We have two children.


The means test for Farm Assist takes into account virtually every type of income you may have but it assesses different income in different ways.

Your income from farming and other self-employment (like contracting) is assessed as the gross income that you or your spouse may be expected to receive, less any expenses you incur to earn that income. From 8 March 2017, €254 of the income each year is disregarded for each of your two children (it would be €381 for a third or subsequent child). 70% of the balance is assessed (it was 100% up to March 2017).

Payments under rural environmental schemes such as GLAS and SAC are assessed separately

Q. True or False: “Classic film villains display a statistically significant higher incidence of dermatologic findings than heroes.”

A. True. Simply put, lots of bad guys do indeed have bad skin, says Steve Mirsky in “Scientific American” magazine. Drawing from the American Film Institute's list of the 50 top heroes and 50 top villains, dermatologists Julie Amthor Croley and Richard Wagner analyzed the top 10 members from each list and found that “six of the all-time top ten American film villains (60%) have dermatologic findings, all… located on the face and scalp.” The heroes were free of conspicuous facial flaws.

For example, when villain #3 Darth Vader is finally unmasked, his face displays “'scars on left cheek and scalp vertex, deep rhytides on face, periorbital hyperpigmentation, alopecia.' In plain English, that's scars, creases, dark circles around

It's an ill wind ...

The week before last, in the aftermath of Hurricane Ophelia, our house – like so many others – lost electricity. I cursed the fact that I had forgotten to boil the kettle and at least have some hot water for a cuppa, but at least I had the candles, torches, a battery-powered radio and fuel for the open fire at the ready. But something far, far worse happened for the younger generation across Ireland. There was no power for computers, no power for games consoles, no power for satellite TV, no power for lights. To be fair, my kids all took of those deprivations in their stride, but they faced a potentially far more

Consuming more than two drinks daily increases stroke risk by 34%

Consuming more than two alcoholic drinks daily in middle age increases your stroke risk by more than a third, the Irish Heart

Foundation said on World Stroke Day recently (Sunday October 29th), as it called for the speedy passage of legislation to reduce alcohol consumption and save lives.

Irish Heart Foundation policy manager Kathryn Reilly said major European research also shows that the average age of stroke onset is five years younger for daily drinkers than people who consume alcohol moderately or teetotallers.

Meanwhile data from Ireland's TILDA study shows that every alcoholic drink consumed increases the risk of atrial fibrillation, a form of irregular heartbeat, which is the biggest cause of stroke in Ireland after high blood pressure, and is particularly associated with more severe strokes.

“We know that 90% of strokes are

Home-owners could be generating their own electricity through rooftop solar panels if the Government switched its support from big solar farms to micro-generation by householders and others, according to European Parliament candidate, Mr Kieran Hartley.

“The Budget is a squandered opportunity for renewable energy”, he said, “because by granting tax relief for utility scale solar farms, it favoured the few over the many.”

Mr Hartley, who has campaigned on energy issues across the Ireland South constituency, said other EU countries had made significant progress with rooftop solar but there were been no beneficial solar-related measures for households, businesses and farms in the Budget.

He pointed out that indigenous Irish SME companies – such as Flahavans Porridge in Co Waterford and the O'Shea Brothers in Iverk Produce in Co Kilkenny - were showing the way forward with rooftop solar. This was also a way
