A farmers protest is continuing for a second day in Dublin - disrupting traffic for morning commuters in the city.
The independent group of farmers organising the protest had insisted they meet with the Agriculture Minister Michael Creed.
Without prior notification, Minister Creed came out to talk to farmers for about 10 minutes earlier this morning - he said he understood their concerns and was trying to get the beef taskforce back up and running.
However, the organisers insisted they were staying put until the Minister met with an appointed delegation.
It's understood that meeting is now taking place in the lobby of the Dept of Agriculture, and the farmers have handed a letter to Minister Creed with their demands.
Getting injunctions against two farmers lifted following the recent beef protests, and better prices for beef are among the main issues.
