I hear that IFA president Tim Cullinan had a slip of the tongue when addressing IFA protesters outside Ag House last week at a demonstration held on farm payment delays and the nitrates derogation cut.

Temperatures were high and tensions even higher when the pig farmer referred to this Friday’s Fine Gael think-in as being “an EPA think-in”. Now, the slip up could be put down to the heat – or else Cullinan got confused on colours, mixing up his Blues with his Greens.
