July 2015

The Irish Council Against Blood Sports will hold a "Boycott the Bullrings" demonstration at Dublin Airport on Friday, July 10th, from 12 midday to 3pm, to appeal to those flying to Spain/France/Portugal, etc to boycott bullfighting.

We will be along the road into Departures with our anti-bullfighting placards and information leaflets, alerting holidaymakers to the cruelty of bullfighting and appealing to them to boycott the bullrings. If you can spare an hour of your time, we would be so glad of your support. Placards will be provided.

As part of our ongoing campaign, we are continually appealing to tourism agencies here and abroad not to promote bullfighting, and have been very successful in recent years. The following companies have responded positively to ICABS appeals and removed references to bullfighting or bullrings from their websites - American Airlines, EasyJet, Jet2holidays, Marriott International, Hilton Hampton, Ebookers, Club Travel, Abbey Travel, Sunways, Low Cost, Travel Department, Cancun Holidays Information Center, Co-op Travel, Ultimate Travel, No Fly Cruising, City Breaks 101, Original Travel, Escape Trips, Charter Travel, NY.T.Roma Hotel, Exclusive GP, Just Resorts,, Burleigh Travel, Abercrombie & Kent, Holiday Transfers, Iglu Cruise, Oliver's Travel's, StagWeb, Joe Walsh Tours, Budget Travel, Osprey Holidays,, Hays Travel, Le Boat, Holiday Hypermarket, Pack Your Bags and Euroventure.

Thank you for your support. We look forward to seeing you on Friday July 10th from 12 midday.
