Rural dwellers have had enough
IN reply to Mr Fitzgerald's letter in Monday's paper, the animal rights lobby has taken Ireland into dangerous territory in which we in rural communities stand united in protecting what we hold dear.
The Green Party has moved away from its core principles in terms of sustainable energy, clean rivers, supporting agri- business and enabling communities to live and work in rural Ireland to an agenda led by animal rights activists who have far-reaching goals that could destroy the Irish countryside and its traditional way of life as we know it.
Live exporting of animals would disappear. Coursing would disappear. Shooting and fishing would disappear. The list is endless.
