I see over 2,000 people attended a meeting in Trim last night to organise a campaign of protest against the Green Party plans to outlaw Stag Hunting in the new year.
They are talking about staging a protest in January and bringing their dogs and horses to Stephens Green. The hunt will have the support of the majority of people involved in rural pursuits (fishing, shooting, coursing, trout tickling) as they see this as the Greens first step in outlawing all of these practices and should be able to bring a huge crowd to the Dail.
I don’t really hunt myself, and haven’t much time for the “horsey” hunting crowd, but have gone out with the foot beagles a few times and it is a great way to spend a Saturday morning in Winter. Fuck the Greens.
