Donegal North East Deputy, Joe McHugh is to meet with the Minister for Agriculture this morning over the fodder crisis in the county.

Farmers in Donegal are struggling to deal with the impact of the weather, particularly after the torrential rain over the weekend.

This was highlighted by the Chairman of the Donegal IFA earlier this week.

PJ McMonagle has called for Minister Simon Coveney to visit Donegal so he can see how bad the situation is for himself.

Deputy Joe McHugh says a plan is needed now to deal with the situation:
