Negotiations between both sides in the beef dispute will resume later this morning.

Meat Industry Ireland, the Irish Farmers Association and the Beef Plan Movement are among those attending the talks in Celbridge.

It’s after beef farmers held pickets at meat plants across the country including here in the Premier County over the low prices they get for their meat.

IFA President Joe Healy outlines the main bone of contention for farm owners.
