The new US tariffs will be taking effect on goods including on Irish butter, pork, cheese and liqueurs. Baileys and Kerrygold will also be impacted.

This is a result of a 25% tariff being imposed on hundreds of European products by the US trade Representatives Office in retaliation for the EU failing to end subsidies for Airbus .

A parallel process is being conducted by the EU who are pushing for tariffs of $10 billion on American goods.

This is to be decided next year by the WTO.
