The Kerry branch of the Irish Farmers' Association says today's rallies were not too little, too late.

Up to sixty farmers took part in a rally in Tralee this morning involving a convoy of tractors, farm machinery and other vehicles.

It was part of a national series of demonstrations organised by the IFA to highlight the value of farming to the rural economy.

Mr Jones adds amendments are still being added to the Climate Action Bill:
