The protest took place in Dublin last month.

A number of protesters, who took part in a tractor demonstration in Dublin last month, have been handed fines and penalty points for alleged traffic offences.

The Individual Farmers of Ireland, who protested on November 26th and 27th, returned to Dublin on January 15th and 16th to express their dissatisfaction in relation to a lack of progress on a submission that was handed to Minister Michael Creed on November 27th and a lack of progress on the beef taskforce.

Farmers and rural community members were invited to take part in the “massive demonstration” to preserve the economic and social aspects of rural life for themselves and future generations.

The group highlighted concerns including uncertainty facing farms and the industries that depend on the agricultural economy, climate change, carbon tax and unsustainable beef prices.

The Individual Farmers of Ireland called for a reform of state agencies, including Teagasc and Bord Bia, and a change in EU competition law to protest small, single traders from large commercial enterprises.
