Irish Coursing Club president, Brian Divilly, forcibly removes two Irish Council Against Blood Sports monitors from a hare coursing meeting in Powerstown Park, Clonmel on 1st February 2014.

As they try to film the hare running for its life on the field, Brian Divilly grabs both female observers by their arms and forcefully pulls them away.

This video shows what happens and ends with footage, filmed earlier on that day, of one of the hares terrorised by greyhounds at the coursing meeting.

Contact all your local TDs now. Demand that they urgently push for a ban on hare coursing and all bloodsports. Tell them you are one of the majority who want coursing banned. Remind them that coursing is already illegal in Northern Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales. Urge them to respect the wishes of the majority of the electorate and back a ban.
