A farmers protest is continuing for a second day in Dublin - disrupting traffic and public transport in the city centre.
The independent group of farmers organising the protest had insisted yesterday that they meet with the Agriculture Minister Michael Creed.
Without prior notification, Minister Creed came out to talk to farmers for about 10 minutes early this morning - and he later met in the Department with a deputation of 5 people who handed over a letter with their demands.
Getting injunctions against two farmers lifted following the recent beef protests, and getting the Beef Taskforce back up and running are among the main issues.
Until those demands are met, farmers intend to continue with their protest.
