Political Views / Councillors

The views of councillors in relation to hare coursing, foxhunting and other animal cruelty issues. Please contact councillors and urge them to push for a ban on hunting, coursing, greyhound racing and all activities involving cruelty to animals. If councillors express support for activities involving animal cruelty, please let them know that their stance will affect your future voting decisions.

Cllr Colm Carthy (Sinn Fein, Monaghan County Council)
“I am opposed to hare coursing. I would like to see a ban on all blood sports.” from an email to ICABS, June 2015.

Cllr Sean Conlon (Sinn Fein, Monaghan County Council)
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.

“Continued use in a modern compassionate society of wild animals in circuses should be a thing of the past.” Cllr Sean Conlon, 5th September 2012.
