Beef slaughtering operations remain suspended at major meat plants this evening, ahead of talks tomorrow aimed at resolving the ongoing dispute with farmers.

Meat Industry Ireland, which pulled out of planned discussions last Monday, says it WILL attend the meeting at the Department of Agriculture in Dublin.

Minister Michael Creed is appealing to all sides to enter the talks in good faith, claiming now is the time for people to take a step back from entrenched positions.

The row over beef prices has seen production stopped at many factories due to blockades by farmers.
