Bank Of Ireland speaks out on farmers protest

The Bank Of Ireland claims it`s being wrongly targeting by the IFA in its protest campaign. Farmers have been picketing branches of the bank in an attempt to persuade them to contribute to a hardship fund for those affected by the collapse of Tralee Beef And Lamb three years ago. But, the financial institution claims its owed 850,000 euro since the plant closed. Tim O Neil of the bank says they have offered other measures to farmers affected by the closure but compensation is out of the question.
