Urge Fianna Fáil to ban cruel hare coursing
19 March 2021

Join us in urging Fianna Fáil TDs to support Paul Murphy TD’s bill which aims to outlaw cruel hare coursing in Ireland. The bill is expected back before the Dail later this year.

It’s time for Fianna Fáil to respect the wishes of the majority and reverse its current pro-coursing position. A RED C poll has shown that 77% of citizens want coursing banned (with just 9% disagreeing with a ban),

Deputy Murphy (RISE/Solidarity, Dublin South West) introduced the Animal Health & Welfare (Ban on Hare Coursing) Bill last September. Presenting the bill - which is co-signed by TDs Gino Kenny, Mick Barry, Richard Boyd Barrett, Brid Smith, Joan Collins and Catherine Connolly - Deputy Murphy condemned coursing as “a cruel, barbaric and outdated practice”.

“It has been banned across Britain and Northern Ireland and across all of the EU, apart from three countries, including Ireland,” he stated.

A ban on coursing is long overdue. Contact Fianna Fáil TDs - and all your local TDs - today and urge them to give their backing to the bill.
