RISE RALLY last Saturday


They say the" Sun shines on the righteous" so we must be on the correct side............it was a blazing hot day in Cashel .  Field Sport supporters turned out in good numbers despite the last minute call..........and the nearby Thurles Dog Sales keeping many greyhound folk away.

We gathered in the main street before making our way to the base of the Rock.....where minsters for the Government were holding a meeting.  Leading members of RISE were allowed to meet up with these TDs and put their case...........I understand one point they were not aware of was The Green Party are out to bring a downfall to Rural Sports by over regulation.....instead of simply banning it!   To us its clear...............we simply wont be able to afford to Carry on.............and its certainly clear to the Greens.......otherwise Mr Gormley would not be standing so firm on his unreasonable demands.



If only a small part of our side gets through to the right people these rallies will not have been a waste of time.
