Joan Collins, TD supports a ban on coursing
01 February 2012
The office of Joan Collins TD has confirmed that the Dublin South-Central Deputy "is in support of a ban on live hare coursing". The People Before Profit politician has previously queried the Agriculture Minister about plans to ban the bloodsport.
On 14 September last, Deputy Collins asked Minister Coveney "his policy on hare coursing" and "his plans to ban this practice". See his response on our Dail Q&A page
ICABS greatly welcomes Joan Collins TD's stance on this issue. Over the coming weeks, we will be urging all TDs to give their backing to the anti-coursing bill being introduced by Deputies Maureen O'Sullivan and Clare Daly. Please help by responding to our action alert below.
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 the anti-coursing bill being introduced by Maureen O'Sullivan, TD and Clare Daly, TD.
