Healy said that the “refusal” of Larry Goodman and the ABP group to lift all injunctions against farmers was "petty and mean spirited"

The IFA has said that Minister Creed should have ensured that the injunctions and legal proceedings were lifted before today planned Beef Market Taskforce meeting.

Joe Healy said that the farm organisation made it clear to Minister Creed that legal proceedings had to be resolved prior to the Task Force convening.

“This was a clear commitment in the beef sector agreement presided over by Minister Creed last month.” Joe Healy said.

He said that the refusal of Larry Goodman and the ABP group to lift all the injunctions against farmers arising from the recent beef dispute was petty and mean spirited. “It amounts to Larry Goodman giving ‘two fingers’ to the Minister.”

IFA is acting for one of the farmers and has been in contact with ABP’s legal representatives seeking the removal of these injunctions.

“What we saw today was a further boiling over of frustration from farmers who see Larry Goodman doing what he likes in contradiction to a written agreement negotiated by the Minister. Today’s events were avoidable.” Healy concluded.
