A FACTORY MANUFACTURING fertiliser pellets has been ordered to close by a judge because of an offensive smell.

LRNR Ltd. was operating a plant near Clones in Co. Monaghan, which was making the pellets from chicken manure, reports Monaghan Life. Five jobs have been lost with the closure of the plant.

Neighbours had complained of a foul smell coming from the premises, and a planning officer from Monaghan County Council said the odour was so bad that he had to wash his clothes after leaving the site.

The company was fined €1,500 and was ordered to pay almost €1,800 in costs to Monaghan County Council.
