FARMERS have vowed to continue occupying European Commission offices in Dublin until the conclusion of talks in Brussels that could determine Ireland's future Common Agricultural Policy(CAP) funding.

Around 50 Irish Farmers' Association members entered the offices on Dublin's Dawson Street last night to highlight the threat to farm subsidies. They said they would remain there today while Taoiseach Enda Kenny meets other EU leaders in Brussels to hammer out a deal.
