Know your onions


Sir, – Paul Higgins’s letter (July 22nd) highlighting the importing of onions from New Zealand to Ireland brought tears to my eyes.

With a Government focused on all things green, should we not be encouraging our farmers to start growing “best in class” Irish onions?

According to health experts, onions are good for you.

Let’s get growing onions and bring much-needed tears of joy to our farming community! – Yours, etc,
