Kilkenny IFA Chairman Jim Mulhall says there shouldn’t be a shortage of turkeys for Christmas

It follows the news that 3000 turkeys in Co Monaghan are to be culled having been affected by bird flu

A local IFA representative doesn’t expect the supply of turkeys for Christmas to be heavily impacted by the bird flu outbreak.

A cull of more than 3000 turkeys on a commercial farm in Co Monaghan is due today after they were confirmed to have the virus.

Kilkenny IFA county chairman Jim Mulhall told KCLR Live earlier there shouldn’t be a shortage of birds for the festive season:

“Just in terms of the market at the moment, I understand that there is going to be no threat to supply because the turkeys will be starting to be got ready for Christmas in the coming weeks,” he said.
