            Horticulture in the Dail - Brexit Issues for Mushroom Industry

            I want to raise the issue of Brexit and, in particular, the effect it is having on the mushroom industry in Monaghan and elsewhere.

Hence, the entire life-cycle of bees is dependent on interactions with flowering plants’, All Ireland Pollinator Plan 2015 -2020.
