Dear Mr Kenny,

I am horrified to note in the Fine Gael manifesto that your party is threatening to reverse the ban on stag hunting.

As one of the majority of Irish people who want all blood sports banned, I urge you to scrap this shameful pledge and instead commit to bringing all forms of cruelty to an end here.

Please stop defending hunting and modernise your party's animal welfare policies.

May I add that a political candidate's stance on animal cruelty is a major factor in my voting decision.

Thank you. I look forward to your reply.



Please contact your local Fine Gael election candidates and tell them that you oppose any attempt to reverse the staghunt ban. You can find the FG candidates list at
