Anti forestry protest taking place today

An anti forestry protest is due to take place this afternoon organised by the IFA.

Concerns have been raised over the last number of weeks in relation to the amount of forestry that is currently happening in County Leitrim with reports suggesting that this could increase.

Councillor Mary Bohan highlighted the issue over roads being damaged to the high forestry loads at Leitrim County Council.

Speaking to OceanFM News, Leitrim IFA County Chairman James Gallagher explains why they are protesting.
