The Department of Agriculture is warning of the risk of Avian Influenza in Ireland's poultry sector, following an outbreak of Low Pathogenic AI in England.

The outbreak was confirmed in a flock of 27,000 commercial chickens in Suffolk.

All poultry owners are urged to maintain vigilance during the high-risk period, which in Ireland is from October onwards, due to the arrival of migratory wild birds.

The Department says it's important for poultry owners to maintain vigilance in relation to biosecurity, prevent contact with wild birds and report any suspicious clinical signs to their vet or the Department.
