Quotes

Phelan said: "Tesco are treating their consumers like children. We're not talking here about animals born thousands of miles from where they are finished and slaughtered. There is little or no difference between beef production methods and standards in the Republic and the North, and we find it hard to believe that a British consumer would object to beef from an animal born in Co Monaghan and finished in Co Down."
"While rebranding of “nomad” beef under a voluntary “Irish” label should be welcomed from the point of view that it can potentially improve the marketing capability of this beef, the value of this beef will ultimately be decided by the market and this will have the most impact on farm businesses in Northern Ireland.”"

Research conducted by the ESRI points to higher replacement rates for married couples with children compared to single people" a report two years ago by the Advisory Group on Tax and Social Welfare found
"We must make sure the economy goes in the right direction; that has to be our priority."
