Major meetings on fishing taking place in Leinster House


Members of numerous fishing organisations, including the Killybegs Fishermen’s Organisation, are meeting with the Minister for Agriculture today and tomorrow.


CEO of the KFO, Sean O’Donghue says a range of issues are to be discussed ahead of the EU Agriculture and Fisheries Council (AGRIFISH) this weekend.


He says fishing quotas and and vessel decommissioning will be hot topics up for discussion.


The meetings are to take place in Leinster House this evening from 5.30pm and the same time tomorrow.


Sean O’Donoghue says many had assumed the fishing quotas would have been concluded at this stage, which is not the case.
