Join the protest against cruel hare coursing - Sunday, February 6 in Clonmel
13 January 2022

Please join our peaceful protest against cruel hare coursing at Powerstown Park, Clonmel, Co. Tipperary on Sunday, 6 February 2022, from 12 midday to 3pm.

This year, the coursers have extended their cruelty fest to four days, and are doubling up on their competitions, so the vulnerable hares will have to endure double the stress and terror, not to mention the two days of "trials" that will take place beforehand.

We ask that all attending adhere to Covid restrictions, i.e. wear a mask and exercise social distancing.

Thank you. We look forward to seeing you then!


Urge Heritage Minister Darragh O’Brien and Minister of State Malcolm Noonan to withdraw the current coursing licences and give Irish Hares the proper protection they deserve.

With a RED C opinion poll confirming that a 77 per cent majority of citizens want hare coursing banned (with just 9% disagreeing with a ban), it is now time for politicians to consign this nasty bloodsport to history. Join us in contacting all TDs and urging them to act to ensure that a ban is urgently introduced. Visit the Oireachtas website for contact details for TDs

Urge Taoiseach Micheál Martin and Tanaiste Leo Varadkar to respect the wishes of the majority and ban hare coursing and all bloodsports.
