WHAT IS COURSING



 Sadly many lies are put about by the anti Coursing brigade and the press and media seem to be happy to print these lies.

So lets deal in some facts...........

Coursing is highly regulated........it is over seen by Goverment rangers and in order for coursing to start 3 goverment Licences must be sought

It is not run by bunch of " blood thirsty maniacs" going out a doing what they wish!!

But by rural family comunities ...........very much like the GAA





After getting these Licences it does not end there..............there is endless paperwork filled out by every club..................before...........during ..........and after a meeting..............These are endorsesd and ratified by Vets and Wildlife Rangers.

Coursing Clubs do not sell hares to other clubs at the end of a meeting!!

Hares are released back into the wild after every meeting  under the supervision of Wildlife Rangers.
and all relevent paperword to endorse this is kept by these rangers.

Every single hare that is captured is tagged and accounted for!............this information is supervised by the Wildlife Rangers.

All Hares caught by the clubs are wormed and treated for bacterial infections that are endemic in the wild hare.

The farmlands that hares live on are maintained by coursing clubs to discourage poaching  and to keep foxes down.............these are the biggest killers of the Irish Hare


Coursing is a fantastic Family hobby............children love it and enjoy the healthy outdoor lifestyle it gives them...........



A attack on Coursing is a attack n the rural way of life and a real threat to the incomes of the many industries that rely on the incomes it brings in..................50 million euros a year is spent.........mainly in rural Ireland in support of coursing





Teenagers shouting there family dog home.................there are plenty of other things these young ladies could be upto.............but coursing keeps families together
