A new study out of Oxford has found that of the one million schoolchildren sent home and forced to self-isolate for 10 days every week last term, 98.4% did not go on to develop Covid. Totally unnecessary in other words.

why do hunters cause suffering for sport
kilkenny / animal rights / press release Sunday January 12, 2014 13:54 by Bernie Wright   image 1 image
SATURDAY at 5pm.
The AOHS have just received information from a Waterford train employee that a pack of hounds hunting across the train tracks have been apparently mowed down by the 2.50 Waterford to Dublin train.

We are currently seeking conclusive proof about this incident!!!!-we now have some more on this.

It happened apparently in the area of Mullinavat and the train accident happened at approximately 3.20 pm this afternoon at Mulinavat.

As it is Saturday we presume it was the Kilkenny foxhounds hunt, who hunt every Saturday at 11am. This has yet to be confirmed.They would normally meet at 11 am.

However we know that a hunt met today at the Rising Sun Pub as the pub staff have just confirmed. They however know nothing of the accident.

Gardai in Moincoin were not informed.

*Rising sun pub/ Mulinavat. Alternatively call 00353 (0) 51 898173 for enquires.

Professor Lars Mjřset, University of Oslo, Norway:

Butler House, 16 Patrick Street, Kilkenny
Friday 15th October at 7.30 p.m.

Ireland Institute, 27 Pearse Street, Dublin
Saturday 16th October at 3.00 p.m.

Farmer, economist, development theorist, historian, and political activist, Raymond Crotty (1925-94) was one of the most original thinkers to come out of modern Ireland.

He made history with his successful constitutional action in 1987 against the Government's attempt to ratify the EU's Single European Act Treaty by simple Dail majority vote instead of by popular referendum.

Holding strong radical views, his advocacy of a land tax as a means of putting pressure on Irish landowners to use their land more productively pitted him against powerful vested interests. read full story / add a comment

The KILKENNY DOGS will be given to rescues for re-homing, they are saved.

We have just had it confirmed from Jim Ryan , Kilkenny County Council that a decision has been made via his superior Tony Walsh ,Director of services that the seized dogs will be not killed but will be given out to rescues for re-homing. Seven dogs were already returned to the travellers –THE REST ARE SAVED.
We had stressed the dogs did not deserve to die and that some of them were pregnant and that a prompt decision was vital.
We had been preparing for to demonstrate but thankfully people power and all the emails and calls have won the day.
Thank you to all who cared enough to get involved. Thank you to Kilkenny county Council for making the humane decision.
We wish the dogs a full and happy life.
I have offered help to the Council with the logistics of moving or relocating these animals. Phone me if you can be on standby if needed.

The AOHS have contacted (Laura Keys) at the Kilkenny People newspaper who have confirmed that online opinion polls are open to mass voting by lobby groups.
We alerted our supporters to the vote online but realise that as this poll is running for a week till Tuesday it means nothing in terms of real analysis.

The votes in favour of ‘foxhunting being discontinued’ have fluctuated from over 80% in favour to just below 50% at other times. Its like a game show, excuse the pun, and the site itself easily allows repeat voting, it is readily open to abuse which makes it all irrelevant. The newspaper have now confirmed they are well aware of the mass-voting aspect.

“For this reason I think it's pointless to participate in these "polls".
They are totally unscientific, are easily rigged, and only really exist to drive traffic to the sites to boost their advertising revenue.
