The next peace vigil at Shannon Airport will take place on Sunday February 9th from 2pm to 3pm. The airport continues to be used as a U.S. military base, with the full support of the Irish government but not the Irish people. This month we are asking for a large turnout as a mark of solidarity with imprisoned peace activist Margaretta D'Arcy. Margaretta normally attends the monthly peace vigils at Shannon but she has been imprisoned by the State because she opposes the U.S. military use of the airport. 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 ICCs decision to move the Irish Cup event from Limerick Racecourse.
