Cllr Ivan Connaughton (Independent, Roscommon County Council, Athlone)
Cllr Ivan Connaughton, an Athleague-based auctioneer, issued a description for a property which included the following: “There is excellent hunting locally with the Galway Blazers, the Birmingham, East Galway and North Galway hunts.” Photos of hunters on horseback alongside a pack of hounds were included in the property brochure. Another property listing on Connaughton Auctioneers website states: “this is a fine property to come on the market holding huge potential in an area well known and regarded for outdoor activities including fishing and hunting”.

Cllr Michael Mulligan (Sinn Fein, Roscommon County Council, Boyle)
“With you all the way – total ban on bloodsports.” from a comment left on the ICABS Facebook page, May 2014.
