One of the country's largest retail distribution centres is being blockaded by farmers in a protest over beef prices.

The Irish Farmers' Association has begun a 12 hour protest outside the Aldi nationwide warehouse in Naas, blocking access to delivery trucks.

They're demanding better prices for beef, claiming prices in Ireland are well below UK and EU levels.

IFA Connacht Regional Chairman Padraic Joyce says the price differences have left farmers very angry which has resulted in huge numbers turning out in Nass this morning.
