    Shock, beep and spray collars to be banned!

    Ive only just found out about this now. i figured a while back that it was only going to be a matter of time but a small percentage of hard headed mutts do benefit from them, hopefully it wont come in over here in eire.
  3. I know a lady with meat rabbits.. new zealand x flemish near castlerea, there was also a fella selling giant breed rabbit does at roscommon poultry sale last month. Im looking at going into it myself... on the american meat rabbit fb groups many of them talk about rearing pedigree standard rex as they get good prices for kits, nice pelts and a decent carcass

    Poodle Cross Lurcher

    Picked this yoke up as a pet for my kid.. 1/2 standard poodle, 1/2 whippet (working whippet) from a accidental mating.. clever wee barsteward.. looks like a lurcher.. paid mutt money for it (€50) hes only about 3mths now so will be interesting to see what he turns out like.. took me a while to come to terms with owning a feckin "whoodle"

  9. Looking into ways of making a bit of extra money from my smallholding without it costing the earth to setup, ive 6acres and poultry.. i have got rid of livestock recently as they had destroyed most of the plants bushes and smaller trees in recent years.. looking for things to grow or make at minimal cost? Ive planted about 300 trees in the last month predominately willow and native trees as well as fruit bushes/trees. Heres the tough part i want to be able to generate a income of 5k per annum.. trying to think outside of the box and whilst im willing to consider air bnb im not in a good location

    Gardai Clamoing Down On Lamping

    Round here there to busy sitting outside drug dealers houses to make sure no one shoots them. or driving up and down a housing estate to make their presense felt to the settled traveller family who just moved in! (so far the only one of them who got into bother was their 2yr old who kept stealing random item from houses while her siblings spent half their time returning those items)

    Gardai Clamoing Down On Lamping

    They come out with this every year, some areas will always have a bit of heat but most of the country hasnt enough guards to keep up with their workload without chasing around after some random person who "might be up to no good" the fat fuckers round my way wont leave the station in bad weather unless its a scheduled drink driving/tax clampdown or to raid some poor f****r who might have a couple pot plants in his bedroom.
