Fine Gael lost out in election hunt

In his letter to your paper (March 7), Richard Power suggests the proposed ban on stag hunting caused minimal, if any, damage to the Fine Gael vote in its pursuit of a majority.

He based that assumption on the small number of protesters at the annual coursing event in Clonmel.

Perhaps Mr Power would check out the Fine Gael website prior to the week of the election and read the large number of hits from concerned people who stated they had intended voting for the party prior to the ban but unlike Mr Power could not, in conscience, do so.
