Year in Review 1st July 2021 - 1st July 2022


  • Over 76 protests and leafleting events.


  • 60,000


  • We received hundreds of emails and messages via our social media pages in the past year from members of the public asking questions, seeking advice, requesting information, reporting animal cruelty and wanting to join our campaigns.


  • We supplied activists around the country with leaflets to campaign in their areas for a ban on hare coursing.
  • We organised events twice a week, and travelled the country doing leaflet drops, outreach and canvassing for the bill to ban hare coursing. We also lobbied many TDs during protests outside the Dept. of Agriculture.
  • In February we supported the ICABS protest at the hare coursing finals in Clonmel.
  • President Higgins signed the fur farming ban into law.
  • Sent in numerous FOIs to the Dept. of Agriculture, as well as PQs via TDs, on hare coursing and animal agriculture.
  • As a result of one PQ, we got it confirmed that – shockingly – the use of live grinders to kill male chicks is still an active practice in Ireland. Another PQ confirmed that there are no rabbit farms currently in Ireland, and our hope is to get a ban put into place, to ensure such an industry never comes into existence here.
  • Took part in various radio and newspaper interviews, and debates on animal rights issues throughout the year.
  • Due to the global Covid-19 pandemic, we had to cease our protests and usual forms of activism during each lockdown, but we were able to replace them with daily online action-alerts.
  • During this time, we also decided to use our normal leaflet budget on social media ads, which has generated a lot of interest and support for our campaigns, from all over Ireland.
