Donegal IFA deny that potatoes are being sold at excessive prices

The Irish Farmers Association in Donegal are denying that potatoes are being sold for more than they should be.

It's been claimed today that a bag of potatoes weighing 7lbs cost 5 euro, that's at least 2 euro more than the same bag could be bought for in most shops.

It was also claimed that these excessive prices could put the public off buying directly from farmers.

But Charlie Doherty from the Donegal IFA, says this must have been an isolated case..
