Foxhunt causes bus company to alter route

4 Jan

Bus Eireann has been forced to alter a bus route and apologise to customers due to a foxhunt in Carigaline in County Cork.

In a message posted on the Bus Eireann website in December, the company stated: “Traffic Diversion – Carrigaline on St Stephen’s Day, 26 December 2016 – We wish to notify customers that due to the South Union Annual Hunt taking place in Carrigaline on Monday, 26th December 2016, from 11.00 – 13.30 buses will operate as follows…”

For the Cork to Crosshaven route, “services will turn left at Roman Catholic Church Carrigaline and turn right at traffic lights, and normal route thereafter.” For the Crosshaven to Cork route, “Services will turn right onto by-pass, left at lights and then right at church.”

Customers were advised to access the services on the by-pass.

“Bus Eireann would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused to customers,” the company stated.

What an outrage that the cruelty brigade are allowed to clog up the roads and cause invonvenience to the travelling public in this way.

The South Union Hunt is the group which celebrated its 100 year centenary some years ago by having a film made of their cruel activity. This included grisly scenes of a fox being dug out of the ground and thrown in an injured state to a pack of dogs to be ripped apart – see video footage at
