Agriculture Minister Michael Creed Has Invited All Sides In The Beef Dispute To Talks Today  

It comes as Cork farmers are to move their protest to Musgrave's Retail Distribution Centre in the city

The Agriculture Minister Michael Creed has invited all sides in the beef dispute to talks later today  

The move comes as farmers who are protesting outside meat plants across Cork revealed that that are to move their peaceful protest to Musgrave's Retail Distribution Centre in the city this afternoon 

Farmers are expected to gather outside Musgrave's at 3pm this afternoon and comes as fears are rising that the number of workers being temporarily laid off at meat factories could increase in the coming weeks.

Meat Industry Ireland say protests by farmers on beef prices are to blame for the job losses, while the Beef Plan Movement says they're not.

3,000 people have been temporarily laid off so far by meat factories
