The details that are required to be published relate to funding received by beneficiaries under the European Agricultural Guarantee Fund (EAGF) and the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD). Due to the closure of the 2007 - 2013 Rural Development Programme on 31 December 2015, any ongoing recoveries in respect of this are not reflected in the figures shown.

Amounts to be Published

The amounts published are the payments received in the preceding financial year net of any deductions for overpayments. This will not be the same as the payment data on the annual statement, which is calculated over a calendar year.

Data Protection

The rights of data subjects and how they may be exercised are laid down in the Data Protection Acts 1988 as amended by the 2003 Data Protection Act, the General Data Protection Regulations (EU 2016/679) (effective 25 May 2018). The Office of the Data Protection Commissioner publishes a guide to your rights as a data subject.

Publication of CAP Beneficiaries Data

In accordance with EU Regulation 1306/2013, the Department is obliged to ensure annual ex-post publication of all of the beneficiaries of CAP funding, both legal and non-legal persons. In accordance with this Regulation the Department must, by 31st May each year, publish the following data:

  • The name of the beneficiary (unless the amount of payment under CAP funds is less than €1,250, in which case the individual will be identified by a code)
  • The municipality where the beneficiary is resident
  • The amount of payment corresponding to each measure received by a beneficiary, and
  • The nature and description of each measure.

The Local Government Reform Act 2014 provided that most first level areas such as counties and cities are now subdivided into municipal districts. Municipal districts include towns and their hinterlands and provide a new tier of local government at sub-county level. These municipal districts generally coincide with an electoral area, but may comprise more than one such area.
