Kerry farmers are being urged to attend a national protest in Dublin about the controversial Mercosur deal.

The Beef Plan Movement will gather outside the Dáil next Wednesday (July 10th) to voice their opposition to the trade deal between the EU and several South American countries.

80,000 Irish farmers will be affected by the deal due to the influx of beef from those countries into the EU.

He is urging farmers in the county to join the protest next week:
