Fine Gael Councillor Pauric Brady and Colm Leonard, a carpenter, have agreed to consent to the Order of the Court.

The injunction proceedings in the High Court today (Friday, September 13th) follow the earlier proceedings initiated by C&D Foods on Tuesday of this week, in response to the “illegal blockade”, according to the company.

Fine Gael Councillor Pauric Brady and Colm Leonard, a carpenter, have agreed to consent to the Order of the Court.

In a statement, a spokesperson for C&D Foods said: “C&D Foods has reserved the right to pursue damages against these individuals.”

"Preventing the conduct of normal business"

The C&D Foods pet food plant - which according to the statement, is “totally separate” from the ABP beef business and is “managed independently” was "illegally blockaded" on Sunday, September 8th.

The spokesperson outlined that at the vast majority of the raw materials used at the plant are chicken and pork, indeed less than 5% is beef.

“A group continues to blockade the premises at Edgeworthstown. This ongoing illegal action is preventing the conduct of normal business operations and has already caused 187 layoffs and is putting another 425 jobs in jeopardy at the pet food plant.” the statement concluded.
