- A programme on TV3 about Smithfield and its pony and horse market left me disgusted.
Poor, defenceless animals for sale: so thin and skinny I wondered about the fact that many are believed not to be licensed or microchipped, which is the law for such sales. The gardai must suspect this, so why are these sellers not pulled in?
I was stopped last week on the back road to Kill and Punchestown by three gardai no less. I thought that they were refilming 'The Guard' as a lookalike Brendan Gleeson approached the car.
