Around 400 tractors will drive into Dublin city centre this afternoon as part of the latest farming protest.
It's a two-day demonstration, as part of their ongoing campaign over beef prices, carbon tax and other issues. Gardaí are warning of major traffic disruption and some road closures.
In November, the Individual Farmers of Ireland organised for more than 300 tractors to descend on the capital to protest.
Last Thursday, a meeting of the Beef Task Force saw supermarket retailers meet farming organisations to try to resolve the dispute. But the 'Individual Farmers of Ireland' is unhappy with the progress made.
Tractors will gather in Merrion Square at 2 o'clock this afternoon before making their way to Leinster House.
This will impact on traffic from 10am when road closures will come into effect on;
o Kildare Street
o Molesworth Street
o St Stephens Green South
o Merrion Square West/South/East
o Merrion Street Upper
In addition the following arrangements will apply;
o East bound traffic on Kevin Street will be diverted up New Bride Street
o St Stephens Green North and East will only remain open for public transport from 2pm.
Traffic delays are expected on the main arterial routes into Dublin City Centre (N2,N3,N4,N7 N81) from midday when tractors start arriving.
Bus corridors will not be impacted and Gardaí are advising commuters to avail of public transport where possible. There will also be on the @gardatraffic Twitter account.
Organisers say the protest will continue on Thursday.
