Blood sports have no place in modern Ireland. Using live hares as lures for greyhounds in coursing is unacceptable. So too is using a pack of hounds to chase and tear foxes to bits. A ban on coursing, foxhunting and all forms of hunting animals with packs of dogs is long overdue in Ireland.

I am one of the majority opposed to hare coursing, hare hunting, fox hunting, terrierwork, digging-out, mink hunting and all forms of hunting animals with packs of dogs.
These disgusting activities are responsible for terrible cruelty to animals and should have no place in modern Ireland.
I appeal to you to show compassion and back a total ban on blood sports in Ireland.
Thank you. I look forward to your response.
