A DONEGALDAILY.COM reader has hit out at ‘sad’ attempts to rubbish his claims that he paid €5 for a 7lb bag of potatoes.
Yesterday the reader contacted us to tell us about his purchase – just a mile or so outside Letterkenny.
Since that, some farmers have claimed that the real price should be €3.50 – and that a farmer couldn’t possibly have charged a fiver.
Following the latest claims, the consumer told us: “This was not a stall run by someone else. This was at the gate to a farm and the people selling the spuds are selling their own spuds from their own farm. They are farmers.
“I am delighted to hear that most farmers are not over-charging. But this one was and I am angry at attempts to say that my purchase didn’t happen. It did. That’s why I contacted donegaldaily.com.”
And just for the record, we went to the same farm today and bought the same bag of spuds.
And it’s cost?…..FIVE EURO.
