There's major traffic disruption in Dublin this evening as farmers continue their protest at Dublin Port. 

Around 100 tractors are blocking East Wall Road and North Wall Quay in a demonstration over beef prices.

The protesting farmers are expected to head home later, via the M50.

Gardai are warning of delays on the N50 southbound, leaving the Port Tunnell, as a result of the protest.

The tractors had travelled in convoy earlier today from Stephens Green and Merrion Square along the Quays to Dublin Port in the protest over beef prices and other issues.

The protest started at lunchtime yesterday, organised by the Individual Farmers of Ireland.

Sinn Fein Senator Rose Conway-Walsh met with some of the protesters earlier today, and told Midwest News that she's never before seen this level of desperation among farmers.
