There is no mistaking the fact that cruelty to animals in Ireland is on the rise. Irish laws to protect animals have failed animals and the work to end animal abuse is down to caring individuals and groups like ARAN. People across the nation are against the cruelty but doing something about is often where the buck stops for many people. On August 26 we are giving people from across the nation and beyond, a chance to take action. Don't miss ARAN's big, peaceful march and rally in Dublin. We'll gather at the Garden of Remembrance on O' Connell Street for speeches and awards before setting off on a special route through Dublin's busiest streets for a peaceful, lively and upbeat march to call for tougher laws to stamp out animal abuse, and to raise awareness of what's happening to animals in this country. read full story / add a comment

Regarding Information about a coursing field that causes many hare casualties.

A Coursing supporter rang us today relaying a dispute in the ICC and Limerick Coursing Club as follows.

We received a call today from a disgruntled and annoyed Coursing supporter who was concerned about limerick Race track being used as a coursing venue. He must have ran out of options to resolve this scenario if he rang us.

We already knew that the Irish Coursing Club had decided last month to move the “Irish Cup” hare coursing event from Limerick Racecourse owing to its unsuitability as a coursing venue.
There is however a meeting this week of top coursing people on Thursday, July 26th,at the Horse and Jockey Pub? We are told ‘at which very powerful people within the greyhound industry will be pressing for a reversal of the ICC’s decision to move the “Irish Cup” event from Limerick Racecourse’.

SPONSORSHIP OF LIVE HARE COURSING IN IRELAND

The multi-millionaire JP MC MANUS is sponsor of the annual Irish cup event, usually held in Co Limerick every Year. The Limerick coursing Club have recently lost their usual venue at the Limerick race track for next year and we now have an opportunity to lobby the sponsors. If sponsorship is pulled in this case it will be a serious blow to the Irish coursing club and help to end this blood sport once and for all.

There is a growing trend of cruelty to animals in Ireland. Irish legislation has failed and continues to fail animals in this country. On Sunday, August 26th 2012 at 1pm Sharp meeting at the Garden of Remembrance, hundreds of compassionate and caring people and other respected groups will join together to peacefully march through Dublin's City centre for a lively and upbeat protest calling for tougher laws to stamp out animal abuse and to recognise animals as sentient beings. Looking away or leaving it to someone else is not an option, and will only prolong animal abuse. read full story / add a comment

Seal killings- due to mans ggreed.
national / animal rights / press release Wednesday June 13, 2012 18:47 by Bernie Wright   text 4 comments (last - wednesday june 13, 2012 21:59)   image 1 image
We strongly condemn Fine GAEL Councellor Seosamh O Laoi’s claims that the west coast seal population needs to be culled [to protect the fishery industry]. In reality, the decline in fish stocks is due to over over-fishing by the very industry he is involved in.
This man, who is himself involved in aquaculture - said that representatives of the fishing organisations should sit down with the relevant experts and work out a culling strategy. He also reminisces to olden days where fishermen carried guns in their boats, and "kept the place clean." read full story / add a comment

Hare coursing: Being kept alive by financial sponsorship
international / animal rights / opinion/analysis Monday May 28, 2012 11:17 by Ban Hare Coursing in Ireland   image 3 images
We wonder if you could help us win a crucial battle in the ongoing campaign against cruel hare coursing in Ireland.

As the campaign to persuade the Irish government to ban hare coursing continues, financial sponsorship is keeping this horrific practise alive.
