Deputy Danny Healy Rae has asked Minister for Agriculture, Michael Creed, TD to intervene in the dispute between farmers and beef processors.

“I am personally calling on the minister for agriculture to first of all meet with the farmers who are protesting at the gates of these factories and to intercede with the factories on their behalf.

Go to the Factory Gates

“I am calling on him to visit the protest at the factory gate in Bandon which is only 25 minutes away from his home in Macroom.

“I am also calling on the Tánaiste Simon Coveney who is less than half an hour from the Bandon factory and Minister Jim Daly who is TD for the constituency there to visit the farmers protesting at the factory gates.

Respect the Farming Community

“I am calling on these high profile ministers to at least respect the farming community who are protesting at these factory gates by affording them the courtesy of visiting them at these protests,” said Deputy Healy Rae.
