We thank Fr. James McSweeney for sharing some 7 splendid images of the arrival of Silage Bales at Dairygold, Millstreet this morning to help relieve the present Silage Situation. Minister Michael Creed was present as was Dairygold CEO, Jim Woulfe. Paul Byrne and Cameraman filmed a TV3 Report most likely for TV3 News coverage this evening (Yes it was on the 5:30 TV3 News – see the details and photos below).
Michael (Web Administrator) has added lots more very interesting relevant coverage below. Click on the image to enlarge. (S.R.)

On the TV3 News
Sure enough TV3 did cover it in the 5:30pm news. Paul Byrne interviewed local farmers Dan Bourke, Eddie Taffee, and Michael O’Sullivan, as well as Agriculture Minister Michael Creed, and Dairygold chairman Jim Wolfe.
See the Millstreet segment on the TV3 Player from 11:10 in the 5:30 news (and now also tweeted by TV3)
