“I am opposed to hare coursing. I would like to see a ban on all blood sports.” from an email to ICABS, June 2015.

In 2012, Cllr Conlon proposed a motion in support of a ban on circuses that involve the degradation and abuse of wild animals. The motion was successfully passed at a meeting of Monaghan County Council.
