Join the 'Ban Hare Coursing' protest in Clonmel on 16 February
30 January 2020

Please join the "Ban Hare Coursing" peaceful protest outside Powerstown Park in Clonmel on Sunday 16th February 2020 from 12 midday to 2pm.

The protest coincides with the last day of the “coursing finals”, a shameful event which sees pairs of greyhounds unleashed to terrorise defenceless hares - all for the amusement of a merciless mob who cheer the dogs on and gamble on which one will force the hare to change direction first. Pressure is growing for a ban on this barbaric bloodsport. A RED C poll commissioned by ICABS found that a 77 per cent majority want hare coursing banned, with just 9 per cent disagreeing with a ban. Please encourage friends and family members to accompany you to the protest. Thank you. We look forward to seeing you there.

When: Sunday 16th February 2020 from 12 midday to 2pm
Where: Outside Powerstown Park, Clonmel, Co Tipperary (Powerstown Road / N24)

With warnings from wildlife experts that the species is in trouble, it is now more clear than ever that the Irish Hare must be given full protection. Urgently contact the National Parks and Wildlife Service and demand that they stop licensing cruel coursing.
