STATEMENT FROM BÓTHAR
It has come to Bóthar’s attention that serious financial irregularities may have occurred at the organisation. These irregularities are currently the subject of a detailed investigation not only by the Board of Bóthar, but also by the relevant statutory bodies who have been fully informed of these matters.
The Charities Regulator instigated a statutory investigation into the affairs of Bóthar in October 2020 and this review is also ongoing.
The organisation will not be making any further comment on any matters relating to these investigations.
Established in 1991, Bóthar is an Irish international charity that provides the gift of livestock as a means of long-term development aid.
