An article which has been published in today's Sunday Times by Mark Tighe describes details of positive news for the campaign for Raw Milk in Ireland. The article has revealed that Minister for Health James Reilly "is opposing plans by Simon Coveney... to ban the sale of raw milk" in Ireland. The article outlines correspondence from Minister Reilly which was communicated to the Department of Agriculture. In one letter, Minister Reilly communicated to Minster Simon Coveney that he "did not consider a ban on the sale of raw milk for human consumption to be proportionate to the public health risks".

The article outlines the opposing view of the Minister for Agriculture, as well as responses from members of the Raw Milk campaign in Ireland. The letters which were released under a Freedom of Information, requested by the Sunday Times, is very positive news for the campaign against the outright ban of raw milk in Ireland.
