Bang on the money for me, relatively speaking. Given 17 years exile.

Shouldn't be any talk of drought years or water shortages this year. We're getting absolutely pounded in NC and the Sierras.

Link to an independent study carried out contained within the article. I appreciate that coursing isn't to everyone's taste but without it the Irish Hare would have a bleak future.

We've actually had this conversation before

I appreciate you providing the article and the link to the biodiversity website. I'm not certain this substantiates the claim that the hare would be wiped out were it not for coursing. Id expect significantly larger populations in areas where shooting was prohibited and the area was kept free of foxes (at what expense to that animal, I wonder?).

If the coursing clubs are taking muzzling measures and the slow animals are only dying from shock as opposed to being caught by the dogs, it's at least a move in the right direction. Comparisons to the food industry or actual pest control blind eye don't fly in my opinion.

The big rabbit gets fucked.

If you’re ok with the coursing you’re ok with the fox hunt.

The big rabbit as you call it would be completely wiped out in Ireland where it not for hare coursing.

Is this where you sell us on the conservation efforts on the back of the activity? Or what?

What are the rules regarding eligibility. Conor Meyler won the Sigerson with St Marys previously and is now lining out for UCD

I’ll be the first to admit that I know feck all about NFL, but I reckon that the Rams will win 32-28.

Can I be the first to agree?  :D

Shenanigans afoot. Derby City rightfully not happy.

Tough loss for Liverpool. City really had to dig deep there and that was a different kind of performance from what you associate with them. Serious hard work when the chips were down and Liverpool were on the rise. Kompany could have seen red easily and that would have changed everything.

It will go down to the wire and should be great viewing for the neutral!

What did yiz make of Sean's book?

I thought it was fairly honest and didn't hold back, especially towards the end.

Quite poorly written in the end. Enjoyable enough if you can look past that. He seems to have no issues with saying it how it is/was/whatever.

Interestingly he was big on the legacy he was leaving behind for his little boy. No mention at all of a legacy for the 2 girls, which in today's world and the push for female sports equality I found to be a bit of an oversight on his part.

Never Changed my own oil, taken Heroin, or successfully read the Lord of the Rings

That aside it’s been a good run
