Talks aimed at resolving the ongoing beef dispute will reconvene on Monday.
The Agriculture Minister has confirmed that he will facilitate the talks, and asked that stakeholders "engage in a spirit of compromise."
Michael Creed added that the dispute has the potential to inflict "long term damage on the sector" if it continues.
Meat Industry Ireland meanwhile has welcomed the new round of talks, which are aimed at ending the dispute over beef prices.
It says that if a process of engagement can now be secured by the Minister, members will defer further legal proceedings.
Mayo based Minister Michael Ring told Midwest News today it’s time that farmers got a fair price for their product.
