Rallies took place in Cavan and Monaghan towns this morning.

Farmers across the region demonstrated this morning over EU CAP reform proposals and climate action plans.

The Irish Farmers' Association says the future of commercial farming is under threat, and that would in turn have a negative impact on rural Ireland.

Rallies took place in Cavan and Monaghan towns earlier today.

Chair of Cavan IFA Elizabeth Orminston says the current proposals go against what CAP was originally set up for.
