About 400 tractors will drive into Dublin city centre this afternoon in a farming protest.

It's a two-day demonstration, as part of their ongoing campaign over beef prices, carbon tax, and other issues.

GardaĆ­ are warning of major traffic disruption and some road closures.

In November, the Individual Farmers of Ireland organised for more than 300 tractors to descend on the capital to protest.

Last Thursday, a meeting of the Beef Task Force saw supermarket retailers meet farming organisations to try to resolve the dispute.

But the 'Individual Farmers of Ireland' is unhappy with the progress made.

Tractors will gather in Merrion Square at 2 o'clock this afternoon - before making their way to Leinster House.

Major traffic disruption is likely in the city centre this afternoon, and organisers say the protest will continue on Thursday.
