Shannonside farmers to take part in tractor protest in Dublin

Hundreds of farmers, including dozens from across the Shannonside region, will protest outside Leinster House this afternoon – even though the Dail has been dissolved.

About 400 tractors will descend on Merrion Square at two o’clock, as part of their ongoing campaign over beef prices.

It’s being organised by the Individual Farmers of Ireland, which organised a similar demonstration in November.
