Wicklow TD Stephen Donnelly is in the news this week after announcing his departure from the Social Democrats party.
In June 2016, Deputy Donnelly (along with Social Democrats TDs Róisín Shortall and Catherine Murphy) was one of the 20 compassionate politicians who voted in favour of Maureen O’Sullivan TD’s bill which sought to ban hare coursing.
Previously, in March 2013, Stephen Donnelly supported amendments to the Animal Health and Welfare Bill which attempted to outlaw hare coursing, foxhunting, terrierwork, digging-out, ferreting and fur farming.
