IRELAND - A group is to be set up to examine the issues facing the Irish poultry industry.

The Minister of State for Food, Brendan Smith, said the group of experts is being established to ensure that a viable sector in Ireland can continue in the long term.

At a conference in Co Kildare on the poultry and egg business organised by Bord Bia, Mr Smith said the industry is at a particularly difficult juncture.

A number of processing plants had closed, he said, and output has also fallen back.
