Sending beef to China

 

Sir, – With the announcement of China’s acceptance of Irish beef for its vast market, rural Ireland will become a vast ranch and Ireland’s citizens will additionally subsidise the beef exports through increasing fines for greenhouse gas emissions. – Yours, etc,

HUGH McDERMOTT,

Dromahair,

Co Leitrim.

Sir, – So Irish beef is now approved for export to the Chinese market. I presume this means our cows have been trained to say “Mao” instead of “moo”. – Yours, etc,
