Hunting gone from GoIreland.com listings

10th September, 2003

The Irish Council Against Blood Sports is delighted to report that we have received a very positive response to our recent appeal to Go Ireland.

The www.GoIreland.com website was featuring contact details for four foxhunts but after an ICABS appeal, the Content Manager of the popular site stated that they had "carried out an exhaustive trawl of the Equestrian Sports section" and removed all references to blood sports.

"We have decided that in future, we will adopt a policy not to list any content which makes reference to or promotes blood sports," he added.

GoIreland.com is Irelandís leading tourism website with over four million unique visitors annually. It is operated by Gulliver, the national tourism information and reservations system, which is jointly owned by Bord Failte, the Northern Ireland Tourist Board and financial services company, FEXCO.

ICABS congratulates Gulliver and Go Ireland for their positive move.
