Labour Party Minister joins anti-coursing protest
31 January 2012
A big thank you to Joe Costello, Minister of State at the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, for attending the protest against hare coursing in Dublin on Monday.
Minister Costello stood alongside a banner calling for TDs to "Support the Bill to End Hare Coursing" during the protest outside the Department of Agriculture.
The Dublin Central TD's views on blood sports are well known. He is on record in the past as saying:
ICABS is calling on the Labour Party, and all parties, to back the anti-coursing bill which is due to be introduced in the coming months by Deputies Maureen O'Sullivan and Clare Daly.

Contact all your local TDs now. Tell them you are one of the majority who want coursing banned. Remind them that coursing is already illegal in Northern Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales. Urge them to respect the wishes of the majority of the electorate and back Maureen O'Sullivan, TD and Clare Daly, TD's anti-coursing bill.
