Fine Gael councillor urged to stop sponsoring greyhound racing

Councillor Gerard Farrell
A Fine Gael councillor is being urged to stop sponsoring greyhound racing at a track where dogs suffer and die.
Longford County Councillor, Gerard Farrell, sponsored the “The Cllr Gerard Farrell, Lanesboro S3-S4 Veterans 330” race at Longford track on Friday.
In an appeal to Cllr Farrell, we have highlighted that in the past three years at Longford track, 44 dogs suffered injuries and 22 were killed. In the same period, over a thousand greyhounds suffered injuries and 385 were destroyed at tracks around the country.
Join us in urging Cllr Farrell to end his support for the cruel greyhound industry.
Phone: 086-8745180
The cruel and crumbling greyhound industry has received nearly a quarter of a billion euros of taxpayers’ money since 2001 (including €16 million for 2018). Urge Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and Finance Minister Paschal Donohoe to end funding to the greyhound industry and instead direct the money to charities and other deserving causes.
