Default Threats to Hunting in Ireland

The pseudo conservation movement in Southern Ireland known as the green party is making strenuous efforts to have anti-hunting legislation introduced here. An organization called RISE (Rural Ireland Says Enough) has been formed and is mounting a vigorous campaign to defend our rights and I would like to ask that they be supported, for what we see now is but the thin edge of the wedge.

That's sad. My Irish father always said that whatever happened here, regarding banning any form of hunting, would NEVER be replicated in Southern Ireland. ''If it gets too bad'' he said ''You can always go 'home'. He'd turn in his grave to read your post.

[Hello pertie,i don't think this will come to much as T.D JOHN GORMLEY who is behind this will not be in power for much longer after the last voting stats of less than 2% for the green party for the next general election,this is also a man who wants to ban horse racing by the way ?Thanks for the info.

i am really surprised and actually quite disgusted that this thread hasn't received much support at all .

if this was a threat to fieldsports in the u.k. then it would be at the top of the page every time you logged on and the post count would be through the roof .

showing your support costs nowt , but it seems that many are not interested and cant spare the time to type a few words .

marvellous .

Pete.

153 posts on another thread would imply that people have a greater interest in a different type of 'fieldsport' altogether.

What you say is true, but they perceive the Ward Union Staghounds as an easy target and are at present attempting to pass legislation to ban their form of hunting and they are also attempting to control the breeding of foxhounds. Gormley's great boast is that he was the first member of the Irish Parliament to have an email address! My thanks to those who have responded, it is much appreciated. I shall be back.
