  1. Anti!.... Ireland has as stringent laws on hunting as the UK, it's not a Free for all. Unlike the UK where you have massive farms and estates with close ties to the hunting fraternity, it's mostly small farmers in Ireland. The Rural community is a close knit society where hunting is part of it's very fabric. Every part is hunted by it's "own" local clubs and people. Besides the local hunters, Irish farmers don't take kindly (putting it mildly) to outsiders especially those with English accents and they ain't afraid to show it..twasnt that long ago their families were persecuted by the British.
  2. Some talk like they're buying into the media bullshit that terrierwork is some kind of evil and that we're lucky to have it! Its a field sport just like any other to be enjoyed and to be proud of. Terrierwork is part of our proud heritage and culture and carried out correctly can easily be justified. These are our countries, free countries where different religion, beliefs, cultures, customs and traditions are to be respected. Make no mistake it's our "right" to carry out all our traditional sports as our forefathers have done before us. These things should never be political footballs for any government or parties to tamper with, that was never their intended role!!! Modern society is not progress! Drugs, gun and knife crime, fast pace of living where people are under severe pressure and stress, two parents having to work to sustain a family, lack of community spirit and respect for one another, the list is endless... too much "Big Brother", going on... poor government legislation is beginning to really interfere with civil liberties to such an extent, a big backlash is inevitable. Look on your fieldsports as your "right". Urban society is ignorant of our Rural traditions and will never understand them but neither should they have the power to interfere with them just because they're in a majority. The different meats we enjoy don't miraculously come in those plastic packagings, I often thought if every person had to slaughter an animal at some stage in their lives a more balanced understanding of life and death would exist. A new movement/party in the countryside is what's needed, a million different issues need addressing ...no more interfering with our freedoms top of the list! Terrierwork is not some luxury the powers that be afford us, it's our right and freedom that's none of their business!
