    In June 2016, Martin Kenny was among the 114 TDs who voted against Deputy Maureen O'Sullivan's bill which sought to ban cruel hare coursing.

    A ban on hare coursing is not compatible with Sinn Féin policy

    Now given time and effort my terrier and this cat may get along swimmingly.. lots of cats and dogs do. But ideally I'd like to give this cat a decent home..
    Be very careful with the 2 of them. I've seen too many horror stories of terriers killing cats. Not all cats and dogs are compatible, some are great friends but others just won't ever get along. If you can shut the dog in a room or something and try to bribe the cat with something tasty like a bit of tuna or ham or something it would help with the trust building.

    Sure, better that than nothing but we're still years behind.

    My FG guy will be taking some abuse at the door next election.

    they also voted against support for horse racing the greyhound industry wouldnt need any government support if they got rid of 75% of the useless crowd that are not needed thats where every cent support from the government goes.

    Tail docking has been effectively illegal since 2014 but I still see young dogs (mainly Jack Russells) with their tails docked. I wish there was an education/advertising campaign to make people aware that this is illegal and unethical.

    There is quite a good article here from the Nov 17 Veterinary Ireland Journal on it.

    Tail docking

    They are fairly clear, it’s always unethical, almost always illegal, not necessary for sporting dogs and vets should encourage the owner to report to the authorities. Unfortunately, no onus on the vet to report it if i read it rightly.

    Really hope someone is prosecuted for this some day.

    I cannot believe Leo believes the Irish to be in a position to lecture the British with regard to animal rights

    I'm sure Leo takes animal welfare as seriously as he does homelessness.
