Not content with shafting misery upon the population through the household charges, Phil Hogan attended a hare course meeting in Kilkenny recently. At the end of the event , Minister Hogan presented a trophy to the winners of the coursing event but does Phil know that at this particular event that two hares died as a result of the hare coursing activities that night? Irish Council at Bloodsports website says

Minister Hogan was filmed presenting a trophy to coursing fans after the meeting
What does this mean for Minister Hogans stance on hare coursing?
