IFA: We won't accept Budget cuts

The head of the Irish Farmers Association is warning the Government that farmers won't go away quietly and accept the Budget cuts.

Over 7,000 members from Clare, Limerick, Tipperary, Cork, Kerry, Galway, Offaly, Roscommon and Wexford gathered in Ennis today for a mass demonstration to vent their anger.

The IFA says the cutbacks will mean a €20m loss to farmers in the region every year.

President Padraig Walshe is demanding the Government think again.
