Kerry Farmer in sit in protest in Co Kildare

A Kerry livestock farmer who was involved in a sit-in protest at a meat factory in Co Kildare says customers have a right to know that much of the meat being sold through the catering trade is of Brazilian origin. Flor McCarthy was among the group who occupied the top of the building in Naas for seven hours yesterday. He says more protests will take place at other meat factories in the coming weeks until farmers’ concerns about traceability are addressed.
