The Irish Farmers Association is holding a rally in Dublin today, because farmers are worried about climate targets.


Farm owners will be driving tractors into the city centre to highlight the importance of farming to the Irish economy.


IFA President Tim Cullinan, says farmers are unhappy with the Government's plans for them on climate change:


"Our farmers are very, very concerned, obviously around climate. We have been given a figure of a 22 percent reduction in emissions. We're not certain if we'll be at 22 percent or 30 percent. That's very concerning for farmers. Farmers are very worried."
