Pure #Irish Beef , Shame to eat them !
~Japan has agreed to lift its ban on Irish beef imports with immediate effect(RTE)~
Taoiseach Enda Kenny said the move could be worth €15 million a year and there is great potential in the Japanese market.
He said Japanese scientists are happy with the competency, standards and professionalism that exists in the Irish market.
The ban was imposed in 2000 due to the outbreak of BSE.
Japan is one of the world's biggest importers of beef and Ireland is now one of three European countries with access to the Japanese market.
Irish Farmers' Association president John Bryan said the move followed years of negotiations and work by the Department of Agriculture and An Bord Bia.
He said it sent a strong signal to other markets that Irish "beef adheres to the highest standards in the world".
Mr Kenny has also extended an invitation to Crown Prince Naruhito to visit Ireland in 2017, which is the 60th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the two countries.
The Taoiseach is on a five-day visit to Japan, with the focus on enhancing trade and investment opportunities with the world's third largest economy.
The delegation includes Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine Simon Coveney.
Mr Coveney said that the decision over Irish beef imports was very significant.
He said: "Japan is a sophisticated market with sophisticated consumers, who are seeking a beef product which Ireland can provide."
President of the Irish Creamery Milk Suppliers Association John Comer said it was another "substantial step forward" for the Irish beef sector and the wider agri-food sector.
However, Irish Cattle and Sheep Farmers' Association president Gabriel Gilmartin said while the additional revenue of up to €15m for the beef industry was welcome, it is not enough to make a significant impact on beef prices in the coming months.
He said while the announcement sends out a positive signal, the meat industry must build on it to deliver better prices.

1-1½ kg neck or shoulder of lamb
Bouquet of parsley, thyme and bayleaf (tied together with twine)
3 large onions, finely chopped
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
3-4 carrots, chopped into bite-sized pieces
1 leek, chopped into bite-sized pieces
1 small turnip, chopped into bite-sized pieces
Some small new potatoes, peeled and quartered, or large potatoes, peeled and chopped
75-100g cabbage, shredded
Finely chopped parsley and dash of Worcester Sauce
Remove the meat from the bone, trim off all the fat and cut into cubes. Keep the bones, place the meat in a pot, cover with cold salted water. Bring to the boil, drain and rinse the lamb.
In a fresh pot put the meat, bones, bouquet of herbs, onions, seasoning, carrots, leeks and turnip and cover with water. Simmer gently for one hour. Skim off the foam as it rises. (this is very important for the final flavour and appearance of the stew.) Add the potatoes and continue cooking for 25 minutes. For the last 5 minutes add in the cabbage. When the meat and vegetables are cooked remove the bones and bouquet of herbs. Stir in the chopped parsley and a dash of Worcester sauce.
Serve in deep bowls with soda bread.
