Green Party leader supports anti-coursing protest
02 February 2012

The leader of the Green Party, Eamon Ryan, has been thanked for attending the anti-coursing protest in Dublin this week. The former Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources was accompanied by Green Party Chairman, Roderick O'Gorman.

The party which pushed through legislation to ban staghunting in 2010 also favours a ban on coursing.

In its 2011 election manifesto, the Greens outlined that when in government, the party would "introduce legislation to ban hare coursing" and "make the hunting of animals with hounds an offence under law".
