Dear TD / Senator,
I am writing to ask you to use your influence as a TD/Senator to help bring blood sports to an end in Ireland.
As one of your constituents who is opposed to animal cruelty, I wish to see you working towards outlawing the blood sports of foxhunting, hare coursing, carted deer hunting and mink hunting.
(Add in your personal feelings about blood sports here - perhaps outline the cruelty of blood sports, how animals suffer and how blood sports are out of place in a modern, civilised society.)
Thank you. I look forward to your positive response.
(If you are writing on behalf of a group of people, ask everyone to sign the letter)

Contact anti-blood sports TDs/Senators and praise their efforts to get hunting and coursing banned. If your TD/Senator is in favour of animal cruelty, please let them know that their stance will affect your future voting decisions.
