Over €26,000 was spent last year by Carlow County Council on the Control of Horses, Carlow Live can reveal. 

The figure comes as new Bye-Laws for the Control of Horses in Carlow have just gone out to public consultation. 

The draft Bye-Laws will repeal the Carlow County Council Control of Horses Bye-Laws 1999 which came into operation in 1999.

A person who contravenes the Bye-Laws shall be guilty of an offence and be liable for every such offence on summary conviction to a fine not exceeding €1,500 or to imprisonment not exceeding six months or both.

The Council incurred expenditure of €26,686.45 in respect of the Control of Horses in 2018.
