If signed the draft Mercosur Deal will destroy the Irish beef industry.

That’s according to Tipperary Deputy Jackie Cahill.

The Mercosur Deal is a trade deal between the EU and South America which will allow them export 99 thousand tonnes of South American Beef into Europe.

Deputy Cahill raised the issue in the Dail and says it has the potential to do huge damage to the Irish Economy.
