Beef farmers from across the region are among the IFA members continuing to blockade Aldi's main distribution centre in Naas, Co. Kildare this evening.

The German retailer says it received no request for engagement from the Irish Farmers' Association, before around 50 members began blocking trucks from accessing its facility this morning.

The 12-hour picket is being staged to demand immediate beef price increases, to bring them in line with the UK and EU.

The Galway-based IFA President, Joe Healy says further blockades of retail distribution centres could take place before Christmas unless beef prices are increased immediately.
