The person named submitted a 2019 Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) application on 9 May 2019 in which he declared a share on the Dunloe Upper Commonage in County Kerry. 

An over claim has occurred on this commonage and my Department is currently reviewing this over claim.  This over claim is impacting on payment under the BPS, ANC and GLAS schemes.  An official from my Department has been in touch with the person named regarding this over claim with a view to having this resolved at the earliest opportunity.
