Court injunctions against two beef farmers for protesting outside a pet food company in Co Longford are to be struck out.

C&D Petfoods had brought the action against Fine Gael Cllr Paraic Brady and local carpenter Colm Leonard after its plant in Edgeworthstown was blockaded in September during the dispute over beef prices.

The disruption led to the company temporarily laying off 187 of its employees.

The Beef Plan Movement had said it would not attend any meetings of the Beef Market Taskforce until the two injunctions were lifted, but say they are now prepared to meet as soon as tomorrow.
