I was wondering about this myself, I know the Irish hare is a subspecies of the mountain/blue hare. Though as has been mentioned there are talks about making it a separate species. The brown hare has been introduced to Ireland, and is interbreeding.

There are only mountain hare's in Ireland for the same reason there aren't any snakes; because the Irish sea is deeper than the English channel and cut off Ireland quicker than the UK from mainland Europe as the last ice age ended and the more southern species didn't make it there.

 

I was wondering more if anyone in Scotland has coursed the mountain hares there. I hear of massive bags from back in the 60's down the pup from well off grouse shooters driving them to guns.

Im just mystified how there are any hares at all in Ireland,with the amount of elite coursing lads and dogs from them fair isles,the rare occurrence of an Hare ever escaping these superior mutts jaws,how the feck are there any Irish hares left,yes I know they hide some on an island to capture,run and release again,them superior mutts must have cotton wool jaws,are the lads thieving dogs from the rest of Britain also taking a van full of hares back to release as well?.

The sangers at Aldergrove were manned by second class infantry,we called them the RAF,the real soldiers manned them in Belfast and Derry,it never ceased to amaze me how slippery the Sanger floors were want to become,the fat twat from Donny that used to spiv on the Calor gas heater is another matter,typical lad from South of the Shire.
