KERRY County Council, prohibited bathing at Ballybunion beaches, due to bacteria levels.

What about all the other beaches in the area.

COW CULL: Deputy Mattie McGrath, the leader of the Rural Independent group of TDs, said the Dail motion recognised “Ireland’s proud tradition of clean and green grassland agricultural production, with farms often managed by the same families for generations”. “It is deeply troubling that not a single government representative bothered to show up and support farmers during this vital debate.

NOTE: Barriers in carbon markets and financing remain for those that are viable e.g., only 1% of all carbon credits are issued through agriculture.

More about grain prices; Deputy Claire Kerrane says- They have advised me that the imported grain is being traded at €160/t, in comparison to current market prices for Irish grain of €202/t for barley, €223/t for wheat, and €430/t for oilseed rape.

Deputy Healy-Rae told the Dáil (Wednesday, June 28) that Ireland is a leader in producing milk, beef and lamb “because we base it on growing grass”. “We are better at farming than anyone else,” he stated.
