Election 2011 - Make your vote count for the animals

In the run-up to the general election, please ask your local candidates where they stand on the issues of hunting and hare coursing. Tell them that they are more likely to get your vote if they are committed to bringing blood sports and other forms of animal cruelty to an end in Ireland.

If a candidate is a former TD seeking re-election, you can find his/her email address here

Dear Election Candidate,

I am one of the majority of Irish people who want hunting and coursing banned. I am writing to ask where you stand on the issue of blood sports and to enquire if you will support legislation banning them, if elected to Dail Eireann.

Thank you. I look forward to your positive response.

Yours sincerely,
