Ask Limerick's Savoy Hotel to end advertising in coursing booklet
The Savoy Hotel in Limerick has been criticised for advertising in the booklet for the National Coursing Finals in Clonmel in February. The advert showed a photo of a coursing greyhound along with the offer of a "Special Rate for Irish Cup Meeting".
In an email to manager Ronan Branigan, ICABS expressed disappointment that the hotel was offering discounts to those involved in animal cruelty.
"Coursing is an extremely cruel activity which results in stress, injury and death to hares," we stated. "We are calling on the Savoy Hotel to please show compassion for the Irish Hares and no longer advertise in coursing booklets or give special offers to coursers."
We drew to Mr Branigan's attention photos from this year's Irish Cup coursing meeting showing hares being terrorised by greyhounds.
Ask the Savoy Hotel to give a commitment that they will no longer advertise in coursing publications or offer special rates to coursers.
