A Great Day for the Irish...but not for Ireland's wildlife heritage.
international | environment | opinion/analysis Friday March 15, 2013 19:04 by Ban Hare Coursing in Ireland
Hare coursing cruelty continues to shame Ireland...
Another Saint Patrick's Day...A Great Day for the Irish...what a pity that the Irish Hare, part of our wonderful wildlife heritage, is still at the mercy of coursing gangs backed by our government...
The hare coursing season runs from about the last week in September to the third week in February and involves approximately 7000 hares each season that are captured for the purpose. Though most coursing events are staged in the southern counties, coursing has a presence in twenty two of the twenty six counties. Clubs become “thinner on the ground” the further north one goes. For example, counties Mayo and Donegal have only club each. The counties without coursing clubs are Longford, Leitrim, Wicklow, and Monaghan. It is banned in Northern Ireland since 2011. The actual number of clubs has been declining since the 1930s.
