Irish Farmers’ Association protest on Lower Mount Street, Dublin.
“Farmers from all sectors have gathered outside the EU Commissions office on Dublin’s Mount Street, accompanied by a cow, some pigs and trailer of grain.”
“They say their businesses are facing possible collapse in the face of higher production costs, price volatility and the continuing Russian import ban.”
“Irish Farmers’ Association President Eddie Downey has called for action at European level, and from EU Agriculture Commissioner Phil Hogan, to safeguard the incomes of farming families.”
