Not long before we all start again......Things have gone smoothly with the Hare catching Licences and reports so far are that hares are plentiful.   I had a days birdwatching on Sunday and saw more hares than birds!

here`s one I saw.....all were big fine hares brought on by a dry summer

Coursing starts 1st of October but before then we have the yearly Hare Seminar at Powerstown Park

SEPTEMBER 17th 2011

This is always worth attending.  Coursing people from all over the country pool their knowledge of hare husbandry and all things Coursing.  Plus a tour of facilities behind the  Clonmel Festival.

October is fast approaching and preparations are well underway at Liscannor and Kilflynn as the curtain is lifted on another coursing season. We all know that great hares make great coursing and with that in mind the third staging of the IRISH COURSING CLUB HARE SEMINAR will take place at Powerstown Park, Clonmel, Co. Tipperary on Saturday, September 17th commencing at 11.00am. 
To date, the seminar has been well attended with excellent participation from the floor coupled with live demonstrations of tagging, dosing and handling of the hare. We are sure this year will be no exception as we cover the main topics and discuss some new ideas also. The event will conclude with a tour of the hare parks in Powerstown and the boxing area. Light refreshments will be provided following the tour. 
Full details are being circulated to Club Secretaries who should then advise Eugene Cooney of the likely attendees from their club. 
Alternatively you can book your place at the Seminar by ringing Eugene @ 052 6188508 or e-mail eugene@sportingpress.ie
