There are calls for the Minister for Agriculture to engage immediately with tillage farmers hit by last year’s bad weather.

Tipperary TD Mattie McGrath, says Michael Creed’s failure to meet with protesters at the Department’s headquarters in Dublin, has only fuelled their anger.

The Independent Deputy says farmers are deeply concerned that the Government’s long awaited crisis-fund is being capped, and the least the Minister could do was talk to them.
