Twitter Limerick campaigner seeks referendum on animal rights Limerick man celebrating ban on wild animals in circuses TAGSArdpatrick and Kilfinane Hare Coursing ClubcoursingIrish Council Against Blood Sports (ICABS)Irish Coursing ClubJohn Carmodylimerick Limerick animal rights group cease operations THE Irish Council Against Blood Sports (ICABS) have called for a permanent ban on hare coursing following allegations of animals being “savagely mauled” at a coursing event in County Limerick last weekend.Anti blood sports campaigners captured horrific footage of hares being struck multiple times and mauled into the ground by the muzzled dogs at the Ardpatrick and Kilfinane coursing event.“It exposes the myth of cruelty-free coursing that the government claims has been the result of muzzling greyhounds at Irish hare coursing events,” animal rights activist John Fitzgerald said of the footage.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “The cruelty was filmed despite frenzied efforts by the coursing club to prevent filming by positioning vehicles to block the vision and paths of the camera people. The film shows the unfortunate hares being savaged and shows one of them being put down by a dispatcher who is running off the field with the doomed animal,” he explained.ICABS intend to present this latest footage to Arts and Heritage Minister Heather Humphreys as further evidence that “hare coursing is beyond reform and that the so-called regulations introduced to protect hares are worthless”.“Witnessing these appalling scenes at the Ardpatrick and Kilfinane coursing meeting, it was never clearer that the time has come for this shameful bloodsport to be finally banned in Ireland,” an ICABS spokesman told the Limerick Post.“ICABS is again contacting Minister Humphreys, the Taoiseach and the National Parks and Wildlife Service to demand an immediate withdrawal of the 2017-18 coursing licence.”They are also calling on Limerick people to contact their local TDs and urge them to back a ban on hare coursing.Limerick animal rights activist John Carmody described coursing as “a ghastly reminder of how backward and outdated we are as a nation and how indifferent we are to the plight of these gentle creatures”.“How can the Government on one hand ban the use of wild animals in circuses and yet allow this most grotesque activity that has went well beyond its time — from an era when we knew no better?” he asked.There was no response from the Irish Coursing Club at the time of going to print.by Alan [email protected] Previous articleLimerick schools send the Fairtrade messageNext articleFontaine Zing will enhance lovelife in Limerick Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ie Linkedin NewsLocal NewsFilm footage of County Limerick event sparks call for coursing banBy Alan Jacques – November 23, 2017 3784 Email Advertisement RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR WhatsApp Pregnant hares held in Glin coursing compound Print Facebook John marks 21 years at the forefront of animal rights Limerick woman highlights plight of circus elephants
The 64-year-old Frenchman, who is the longest-serving manager in the Barclays Premier League having taken charge in 1996, ended the club’s long wait for silverware by winning the FA Cup earlier this month. It was his eighth major trophy with Arsenal, leaving him with a haul of three Premier League titles and five FA Cup triumphs. Press Association A new deal for Wenger had been expected in the wake of the latest FA Cup success, and the Gunners confirmed the three-year contract on Friday afternoon. Wenger said: “I want to stay and to continue to develop the team and the club. We are entering a very exciting period. We have a strong squad, financial stability and huge support around the world. We are all determined to bring more success to this club. “The club has always shown faith in me and I’m very grateful for that. We have gone through fantastic periods and also periods where we have had to stick together. Every time when that togetherness was tested I got the right response. I think I have shown some loyalty as well towards this club and hopefully we can make some more history. I am sure we can. “We are entering a very exciting period. We have a strong squad, financial stability and huge support around the world. We are all determined to bring more success to this club.” Former Arsenal goalkeeper Bob Wilson, who served as goalkeeping coach in the early years of Wenger’s Arsenal reign, told BBC Radio 5 Live: “This is a guy who works 24 hours a day all year round. “He hates to lose and revolutionised the game in the country. Some say he has too much power but a guy who dedicates himself to it like he does, you cherish. “Every club who has built a new ground in this country have all been relegated. Why? Because of the stranglehold of the debt of a new ground. Arsene and Arsenal have got through that stage by still qualifying for the Champions League.” Arsene Wenger has agreed a new contract to remain as Arsenal manager until 2017.
