It was a great relief to see the hares at Liscannor so well trained and strong. A game of Ducks and Drakes played by Mr Gormley left little time for catching and training hares..............it is to there credit that Liscannor were up to the task.
Before the off
Hares had enough tricks to fool the dogs!
and they all made good their escapes!

The weather kept fine for a super first day at Liscannor. The crowd was hugh and many of these were holiday makers impressed with their first look at Coursing. Many had only seen the terrible propagander put out by the antis and were pleased they made the effort to see it for themselves.
Hares were excllent all day and a great credit to Liscannor club, who excelled in difficult circumstances.

Many pups were running green on this first day..........there were a few scrathced runners in the second round as conditions were firm. Drying winds at this time of the year soon change the going........rain is needed soon!
